Brilliant Sky Toys & Books was founded in 2002 by Brent and Sonia Taylor, parents and visionary entrepreneurs driven to create the finest toy store in America – one with a focus on bringing families together to get the most from their valuable playtime.
The concept was immediately well received. In 2003, Playthings Magazine, a leading toy industry publication, awarded Brilliant Sky Toys & Books its Industry Achievement Award for “Best New Store Design”. 2005 brought more accolades as Travel Savvy Magazine named Brilliant Sky Toys & Books one of “America’s Top Seven Toy Shops”. Most recently, Brilliant Sky Toys & Books was selected by the Edward Lowe foundation for inclusion in the “Michigan 50”, a list of fifty companies actively contributing to the revitalization of the economy.
Beginning in 2007, the Taylor’s sought to bring their winning formula to a larger audience through franchising. Again, the business model was embraced whole-heartedly and the next chapter in the Brilliant Sky story had begun.
Today, Brilliant Sky Toys & Books has become one of the largest and fastest growing concepts in specialty toy retailing, and is expanding by awarding franchises to exceptional candidates nationwide.
Owning a Brilliant Sky store allows you to create a toy store that meets the needs of your specific community! You have the flexibility to create unique events, programs and activities — and at the same time have a built in support system with other owners from across the country.
