Anglo Dutch Pools and Toys was founded in May 1985. We are a mom and pop store in Bethesda, Maryland, very close to Washington, D.C. Our humble beginnings started as a pool store carrying an automatic pool cleaner, the Kreepy Krauly, and BioGuard chemicals. We felt people should also have fun in their pools and started carrying games, floats, and a waterproof bar. This made us conscious of the children’s needs in the swimming pool and started carrying life vests, swimming aids, and pool alarms.
During the year that followed, many customers came to us saying that they needed swimming accessories for swimmers and water aerobics. So, we started carrying swim suits, goggles, fins, kick boards, buoys, swim belts, and many other items. When customers came in and asked us why we only had water toys and no land toys, we started studying the matter and our toy store was born. As you can see, our aim is to make every person a happy and satisfied customer.
