Dear Mummy, you know how much I love toys….well I am nearly 3 years old after all. So imagine my excitement at being invited along to The Toy Fair!
The Toy Fair is the UK’s only dedicated toy, game and hobby trade show taking place from Sunday 24th January till Tuesday 27th at Olympia, London. With more than 270 toy manufactures and distributors exhibiting thousands of products to visitors including retailers, buyers, media and little ol’ me it’s set to be a great day out!
We can’t wait to discover 2016’s Toy of the Year before the general public do! Browsing the stands is my idea of heaven!
My mummy will be scouting the best toys and giving you a low down on what we think is hot (and not for 2016).
We looked at last years highlights and now can’t wait to go on opening day!
I’ll be keeping an eye out for all the role-playing toys and products that spark my imagination, while my mummy will be looking for teaching aids to help progress my pre-school learning, ready for school next year.
My daddy will be on the look out for Lego and Star Wars inspired toys (Men will be men eh?)
There are too many brilliant companies exhibiting to list, so here are the stands we’re most looking forward to visiting and saying hi to!
1) Orchard Toys – Stand B20. We’re brand ambassadors so can’t wait to meet the team in person! We’ve reviewed products by them before and have never been disappointed.
2) LEGO – Gallery 550. We’d be mad not to visit this stand and see some new sets! LEGO is worth its weight in gold after all 😉
3) Melissa & Doug – Stand F40. This brand has had such an impact on my little life so far. We can’t wait to see what they have on offer!
4) Schleich – Stand B121. We love all the realistic animals that they create! I’m half way to creating my own Noah’s Ark!
5) Alphabet Pie (Nutty Putty) – Stand Gallery 176. I love putty so can’t wait to see what this small independent company has to offer.
6) Lottie Doll – Stand B135. I have many princess dolls, but my mummy loves the design and styling of this Lottie Doll, so we’re heading down to see what all the fuss is about.
7) BigJigs Toys – Stand H39. Fun and educational toys – this is a must for my mummy to see!
8) Galt Toys – Stand E9. We’re looking forward to seeing their new activity packs!
9) Halilit – Stand E90. We’re looking forward to playing with their musical instruments for children! I love anything to do with music, singing and dancing! So this stand will be right up my street!
10) KidKraft – Stand E79. We’re looking forward to checking out their children furniture range. I’m currently on the look out for a new toddler bed and love their wooden toys.
