Simply Clever Toys is an online toy store based on a simple idea; to sell the best toys in the world.
I (Jacob) and my brother, Matthew, began Simply Clever Toys way back in 2010 when we were 16 and 14 respectively. It all began when Matt received an RC helicopter for his birthday. He liked it so much he brought a dozen into the country and began reselling them on a local auction site called TradeMe. After a couple of months I began to see how successful Matthew was becoming with selling his RC 'copters and so naturally I wanted in. We combined our money and resources and Simply Clever Toys was officially born.
Our first big break came when we hired a stand at a model and toy expo called Model X. We did incredibly well there and sold almost all our stock. With the new found capital Matt and I were able to hire a web developer to make us our first website, and thus Simply Clever Toys joined the .com movement.
Look! We were so little!!!
