Over 60 collaborators in the headquarters in Illasi, a stone's throw from Verona. An operational area of over 1500sqm. A trading company in Hong Kong is dedicated to select the best toys for safety and quality. A 32,000 square meters warehouse allows us to handle over 800 containers and 100 trucks and ship 1,200 trucks per year destined for our customers. We also own a renovated 2,500mq showroom on two levels, the largest in Italy.
This is Globo today. Globo is the most relevant national company in value for money toys import. For over 40 years, it has been a protagonist in constant growth. This process has allowed the company to turn, from a small family business run by Carla and Giovanni Ortolani, into a "top player" in the toys field. Today Globo is able to anticipate market demands by exploring, selecting, controlling, and making an amazing variety of toys available to everyone.
Globo provides games for children, soft toys, remote-controlled, board games, make-up for girls, wooden toys and licensed product lines.
The large Globo showroom in Illasi is today the largest showroom in Italy and a point of reference for all stakeholders in the industry.

Man is only fully human when he plays!
Friederich Von Schiller
In Globo, we believe that play is a right of all children, no one exluded. In fact, we believe that playing is fundamental in every step of that wonderful path that leads each of us to become a man. Our responsibility, also towards parents, is therefore to guide, facilitate and support children in this journey with safe and stimulating toys.
It's our job to explore all the worlds of entertainment by selecting only the most suitable products to encourage, for example, the power of imagination and creativity, musical talent, and mental elasticity. These skills help every child free to play to grow, thus fully becoming a man.
