When you're on a quest for the perfect toy, think Toy Quest. Among the world's largest private makers of electronic games and toys, the company (formerly known as Manley Toy Quest) makes robotic pets such as Tekno the Robotic Puppy and interactive doll Cindy Smart (who can speak, as well as "see" shapes, letters, pictures, and objects.) Other products include Stretch Screamers, role-play costume sets, and Aqua Blast (all the makings of a backyard water park, licensed with Six Flags). Toy Quest's products are sold by toy retailers, discount stores, and online. Founded by Chinese businessman Sampson Chan in 1975, Toy Quest is owned by Chan and president Brian Dubinsky.

ToyQuest is a category leader in the inflatable water business at major mass retailers.
“ToyQuest continues to bring quality and innovative products to the marketplace.
