Three reasons why we loved the New York Toy Fair

1. An improved environment

For the first time in a few years, we made the trek to the New York Toy Fair. To set the scene, it's a four day expo for all things toy and toy related. The verdict: it was well worth it. We saw improvements in research and development, display creativity and business overall.

2. Revival of the classics

History tends to repeat itself in the toy world, but we aren't compaining! Mickey Mouse, a timeless favourite is making a resurgence this year among many of our suppliers. Expect Mickey-themed puppets from Folkmanis, puzzles from Ravensburger and plush from Ty.

3. A focus on film

Upcoming movies will play a huge part in this year's product line. The blockbuster family films have found their way into puzzles, games, dolls, crafts, models and just about everything else! We'll even have some of these fantastic new products in time for your favourite new releases!

Boxes will start to arrive shortly from our latest haul inspired by the New York Toy Fair. We'll have them on shelves and ready to purchase as soon as possible!
