Positioning in the European market

Rollplay plans to expand the brand on the North American market as well as on the European market:

“The European market has many regulatory requirements for toys – especially in the area of electric children’s vehicles. In addition, all parents, regardless of their origin, are concerned about the safety of their children. That’s why our vehicles are put through their paces in our testing institutes. Safety and driving pleasure are top priorities at Rollplay. Apart from that, the children are very similar in both markets. The most striking differences are in individual tastes and preferences”, Jeffrey Popper, CEO of Rollplay.

Licenses at Rollplay

“With the battery-powered vehicle “Dragon Mini Quad” to the universal film series “Drachenz√§hmen leicht gemacht” Rollplay has created a new product category this spring. Furthermore, we have been working together with the largest automobile manufacturers for 20 years and inspire parents and children with our licensed vehicles. This always gives us new food for thought. With my experience in the entertainment industry, we will continue to look for exciting new cooperations. But only if we see added value for the end consumer,” says Jeffrey Popper.
