ToysNews talks to Zara Grindrod , sales director at Rainbow Designs about why the Toymaster show is a must every year.
What will your company be showcasing?
We will be showcasing our brand new Peppa Pig Baby range, Shaun the Sheep movie and classic range, The Snowman FSDU and our classic and new Paddington collections.
Will you have show offers?
We are offering an additional five per cent discount and a free FSDU when you order £300 of Shaun the Sheep and The Snowman.
Why is Toymaster such an important event in the industry calendar?
It is the most focused show supporting the independents and as a result receives great support from all the trade. It is also a great opportunity to get together with industry friends and colleagues a few months after the main trade show season.
Why did you decide to exhibit at the show?
We started exhibiting a few years ago now and found it such a worthwhile and fun event, that we now make sure it’s part of the calendar every year.
How important are the indie toy stores to your business?
Very important; they have been at the core of our business for a very long time, since Rainbow began, and we are currently seeing growth in that area of our business.
Best Toymaster memory?
There are so many, but really seeing the amazing effort everyone puts into their costumes on the first party night.
