“We believe that Playhut is the brand of choice for indoor and outdoor play structures,” said Jay Foreman, CEO of Basic Fun! “The company is well known for innovation and quality by consumers, retailers and licensors. They ran into serious troubles navigating the challenging retail environment between the bankruptcy of Toys”R”Us and the fight at retail between brand and price. It’s our mission to reinvigorate Playhut and return the brand to its position as the leader in this very important micro category within the kids’ products space.”
Playhut has been making play tents and other structures for decades, many of which were licensed products featuring characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, Thomas & Friends and others.
On the PAC-MAN note: Basic Fun! makes the fantastic Arcade Classics line of portable electronic games that I'm a huge fan of. While I have their PAC-MAN machine here, I have to say that Rampage is my favorite thus far.
