We're in the process of completely revamping the website and moving it to a different platform.
This should be ready for the end of July this year.
Due to focusing on the development of the new site and making sure it'll be ready for you,
maintaining this existing site has ceased, you may notice out of date products, empty sections and missing images.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Some sneak peak images from the site in development attached.

A founder member of the Club Group. The UK's leading associations of distributors and importers of Toys, Models and Stationery. The A.B.Gee business started back in 1968, when the company was founded by Alan Godkin. Alan’s father owned a toy shop in Ripley, Derbyshire for many years and the business was initially set up in the back room of the shop. Alan visited the Harrogate Toy Fair and placed his first order for the mere sum of £50. Alan would never believe that over 40 years later the company would employ over 50 staff.
Over the last 40 years A.B. Gee has evolved from being a small independent toy wholesaler to become the UK’s largest importer of toys and models. Our 60,000 sq. feet Head Office and Distribution Centre in Derbyshire provides the base from where we supply wholesalers, retailers and large high street and online stores. AB Gee has the most comprehensive range of toy and model products you can find anywhere from one source.
The whole of the UK and Ireland are covered by a combination of its own sales force and agents, with many years of experience in the toy and model markets.
The company is now privately owned by three directors, all of whom have been with the company for over 20 years. Each member of staff is committed to delivering an optimum service to every single account. Decades of collective knowledge and industry experience provides the vision for our product ranges of the future, our buying team scan the worldwide manufacturing base to source them and negotiate the best deals to pass on to our customers, resulting in our competitive edge.
