Integral to the purchase agreement is a service agreement with DKE Toys to continue to provide vendor relations/management and new product acquisition services for Disburst going forward. Disburst will continue to maintain the current warehousing and fulfillment operations in North Hollywood, CA.

“The opportunity to take the highly respected services DKE Toys provides and extend their reach and breadth is what motivates Disburst. Retaining Dov’s participation via DKE Toys as an invaluable resource for independent toy designers to work with on behalf of Disburst is what makes this purchase so important to us,” said Scott Kuenzli, Chief Executive Officer of Disburst. “We at Disburst anticipate that leveraging our extensive backgrounds in business operations will enable us to take and grow the DKE Toys wholesale and fulfillment operations to include even more vendors, products, and customers in the future years.”

DKE Toys has been in the toy business for over 22 years and has operated as a wholesale independent toy distributor since 2005, presently serving as the largest independent toy distributor in the world.
