The Orb Factory Holiday Round Up

2014 has been another successful year for The Orb Factory! 
The Orb Factory is a Halifax-based toy company with over 30 employees employed at our Halifax office.  We have a dedicated team who work hard to make amazing craft kits for children all over the world.  From the initial brainstorming and conception of a product, to the actual design, sourcing, and packaging, this creative bunch of designers are always ready to think outside the toy box!

We hire locally, meaning that many of our designers graduated from NSCAD, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.  Our team is young, vibrant and creative!  We love that products entirely imagined and created here in Halifax are bringing joy and wonder to children all over the world. 

This year alone, The Orb Factory has had products featured on both The View and The Today Show and has received full-page coverage in Today’s Parent.  Our sales team always seems to be on the road, whether it’s meeting with new buyers and stores or networking at a trade show.  

The Orb Factory made a huge effort to give back this season.  Although we donate to both local and national charities throughout the year, we embraced the Holiday spirit and gave away over $10,000 worth of toys this season.  After passing out hundreds of toys in the Parade of Lights, we stopped by the C100 Toy Drive with another car full.  We also dropped off several cases of toys to the IWK, our local children’s hospital, something that has become a tradition for The Orb Factory.

This year, The Orb Factory has won numerous awards this year, both nationally and internationally.  Imaginista, a trendy tween accessory line, has already won UK's prestigious ToyTalk Best Arts & Crafts Toy Award while, locally, The Toy Insider named Imaginista Decoupage as one of their TopHoliday Toys.      

From Halloween costumes to April Fools shenanigans, The Orb Factory has figured out that it might be all fun and games after all!
