Who we are
Klosters Trading Corporation, in business since 1987, is a provider of competitive insights into the toy retail space worldwide. In addition, Klosters follows all major public companies engaged in the toy industry
Klosters' clients are large finance entities who use Klosters as a resource for intelligence data on which to base strategies or recommendations.
Klosters relies on three source levels. The first is an exclusive retailer panel of ten retail stores engaged in the sale of toys. This panel – which includes Wal-Mart, Target, ToysRUs, Barnes & Noble, and six other significant retailers - provides sell-though data, market share data, inventory assessments, pricing data, shelf space metrics and a review of manufacturer-related problems and opportunities as these apply to the specific individual store. The second are national buyers at large toy retailers, both brick-and-mortar as well as internet-based, in the U.S., Europe, Australasia, Latin America and South Africa -in total 28 retailers in 17 countries. These provide color on products, manufacturers and consumer reactions. The last are third-party manufacturers in China who share information on costing, production and supply chain issues relating to the toy industry.
Lutz Muller, the owner, also has a monthly column in the Toy World Magazine U.K. and is a regular contributor to Seeking Alpha. He also publishes two monthly Newsletters - Toy Manufacturer and Toy Supply Chain - as well as a half-yearly Toy Industry Assessment.
Corporate America News declared in December 2016 Klosters Trading the best Toy Business Intelligence Company in the U.S. and its Toy Newsletter the best Industry Tracking Snapshot
