2024 Year of the Dragon – Shop All Celebrate with 100s of Festive Finds!

Our History

I founded Oriental Trading Company in 1932 as a small importer and wholesaler of novelty and party items. What started as a humble business run out of my home importing paper lanterns and fans transformed over decades into the leading party supplier in the country.

Even during tough economic times, I strived to keep Oriental Trading afloat by adapting to our customers’ changing needs. The 1970s gas crisis forced many Americans to scale back on driving and spending. So I shifted our focus to smaller, less expensive items that could easily be mailed. By the 1980s, we rode the waves of economic growth to become the nation’s top wholesaler of party supplies, toys, and gifts.

I first ordered from Oriental Trading Company over 10 years ago when planning my daughter's birthday party on a budget. I was amazed at the selection and low prices on party supplies and favors. Since then, I have returned to them many times when planning parties, events and even classroom projects as a teacher. Their products bring delight and excitement to any occasion. My most recent order of plastic eggs, assorted filler toys and stuffers for an elementary school Easter egg hunt event was just as satisfying. The quality met my expectations and the price simply couldn't be beat. The items arrived quickly and well-packaged. I will definitely shop Oriental Trading Company again soon.
