We’re stoked to have one of our latest additions to the warehouse be Toy Machine Bloodsucking Skateboard Co. Founded in 1993 by Ed Templeton, a former New Deal rider at the time, Ed went to Todd Swank at Tum Yeto Distribution to see about launching Toy Machine and luckily Todd was very much up for the idea. Little did they realise they were about to create one of the most iconic and successful skateboard brands in the history of skating! Thanks to Ed’s quirky artwork and desire to constantly doodle they managed to create one of the most widely recognised skateboarding logos, the Red Monster, once you’ve seen it’s bright red skin, spiky teeth and vibrant yellow horns it’s hard to forget. As well as its artistic direction and crazy graphics Toy Machine have produced some of the gnarliest skate videos ever seen thanks to their heavy past and present team riders like Jamie Thomas, Bam Magera, Brian Anderson, Elissa Steamer, Chad Muska, Mike Maldonado, Josh Kalis.
