Our Story
 
Our family-owned business began in 1995 by distributing unusual giftware products from the USA, inspiring us to name the company Half Moon Bay! (Half Moon Bay is in California). We quickly moved into designing and sourcing our own products, becoming known for our love of retro classics and iconic licenses. Today, we’re proud to represent many of the world’s biggest entertainment brands, working with Disney, Warner Bros. and others to create outstanding products that consumers love.
 
We expanded in 2008 with the acquisition of Robert Opie Trading Ltd, which used nostalgic images taken from The Robert Opie Collection on a diverse range of products, enabling us to take our first strides into the heritage, museum and traditional giftware retail markets.
 
Throughout our 20-year history we’ve remained an independent, family owned business with a simple mission; to offer our retail customers products that sell at consumer level, backed up by a straight forward and easy to deal with customer service approach.
