about us

Gemmy Industries was founded in 1984 in Dallas, Texas. Since then, Gemmy has been a groundbreaker in the fields of novelties and animation. Gemmy’s animation expertise has created such names as Pete the Repeat Parrot, Douglas Fir and, of course, the Big Mouth Billy Bass sensation.

Over the years, Gemmy has been equally successful in the seasonal decorations market, creating new categories and performing brilliantly in others. We were the originators of Airblown® Inflatables, which have since become a staple of holiday decor. Gemmy has also pioneered the way in life-sized figures for Christmas and Halloween, and blazed new trails in lighting solutions and technology – most notably with our LightShow™ brand.
Our products have enjoyed time in the limelight, and lodged in pop culture. We’ve appeared in the pages of the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and the Washington Post and have been featured prominently on The Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and the Colbert Report.
Gemmy Industries is the premier trendsetter in the areas of entertainment technology, decorating solutions, and animatronics, continuing on in our role as an industry leader and innovator.
