NEW YORK–Griffin Bacal has new toy business. The shop, which is recovering from the losses of the Playskool and Discovery Zone accounts last year, has won the estimated $8 million account of K’Nex Industries. The Hatfield, Pa.-based company makes a toy line with interlocking plastic pieces.
Griffin Bacal president Paul Kurnit said K’Nex toys offer ‘a more sophisticated building experience’ than industry leader Lego.
