It was the Toy Fair this week – the UK’s go to event for everyone who works with toys (obvs!). Starting way back in 1954 the show featured Sooty, arguably the UK’s most famous hand puppet, and Scrabble – an instant Christmas hit. And, since then the show has launched some of the world’s best toys including Hula Hoop, Lego, Monopoly, Sindy, Rubix Cube and Tamagotchi. They were all fairly popular you might recall.
Firebox is a big kid, and so naturally it loves toys - it gets giddy just hearing the words Toy Fair. We descended upon the show en masse (well not everyone, some of us had to answer the phones and do the photo copying back in the office).
Want to see more? Course you do. Go check out the highlights crazy toy fans. Some of these products are brand spanking new so we hope you find them as exciting as we do.
And finally, big thanks to everyone that came to our after show drinks parrrty on Tuesday, especially Toyology who helped make it happen. Don’t worry though, we were in bed nice and early.
