Obituary: Malcolm Rose By Michael Angel

Malcolm Rose

TnP is sad to report that Malcolm Rose has passed away at the age of 81.

Malcolm had a long and distinguished career in the toy trade, holding senior roles with several companies, starting with Angel Toys in the mid-1960s, followed by Illco and Mookie Toys, where he was sales director and –  over a 10-year period – played an instrumental part in the growth of Mookie Toys and its establishment as a pre-eminent force in the outdoor toy market, both in the UK and internationally. He retired from Mookie Toys in 2005. 

Affectionately known as ‘Grumps’ by his family and many of his colleagues, Malcolm is survived by his wife Sandra, children Simon and Jo, and grandchildren Sophie and Sam.
