History

 

James Galt set up an educational company back in 1836 that focused first on desks and blackboard for schools and then expanded into publishing and printing.  They moved to their Cheadle headquarters in Chesire in 1957.  In 1961 they created a separate division called Galt Toys.  They used Ken Garland and Associates to build their brand image and he inadvertently changed their name to Galt Toys.  That name stuck and they have been using it ever since.  Under Ken's watch, they created some very iconic games such as Connects.  Along the way, they also produced crayons.
