Coleco

Brand

Coleco Inc. is an American company founded in 1932 by Maurice Greenberg as "Connecticut Leather Company".  It became a highly successful toy company in the 1980s, known for its mass-produced version of Cabbage Patch Kids dolls and its video game consoles, the Coleco Telstar dedicated consoles and ColecoVision.  The company is headquartered in Manalapan, New Jersey.

The reorganized Coleco sold off all of its North American assets and outsourced thousands of jobs to foreign countries, closing plants in Amsterdam, New York and other cities.  In 1989, Hasbro and Canada based SLM Action Sports Inc. purchased Coleco's assets.

In 2005, River West Brands, a Chicago-based brand revitalization company, re-introduced Coleco to the marketplace. In late 2006, they introduced the Coleco Sonic, a handheld system containing twenty Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear games. In 2014, River West Brands established the subsidiary Coleco Holdings for their Coleco-branded projects.
