Berkshire Hathaway, renowned for its shrewd investments and diverse portfolio, has found a jewel in Jazwares, one of the world’s fastest-growing toy companies.

This acquisition, as part of Berkshire Hathaway’s October 2022 takeover of Alleghany Corp., is proving to be a game-changer for the conglomerate, as it previously had little presence in the toys and games market. Notably, Jazwares is the creative force behind the toy sensation, Squishmallows—the number one toy in the world.

In the first nine months of 2023, the Jazwares acquisition has yielded substantial dividends for Berkshire Hathaway. The company reported revenues of an impressive $847 million, showcasing Jazwares’ significant contribution to the conglomerate’s financial performance.

Jazwares, a global toymaker with a reputation for innovation and creativity, has rapidly gained recognition in the industry. Squishmallows, the flagship product of Jazwares, have been a resounding success in the toy market. These adorable, soft, and huggable plush toys have become a phenomenon, sparking a craze among collectors and enthusiasts. The lovable characters have made their way into countless households, offering comfort and companionship, and even helping some individuals deal with stress and anxiety.
