IN PICTURES: ToyNews Women of the Year 2016

If, like our dear editor Billy, you have woken up disheveled in a hedge with the taste of one too many Cosmos in your mouth, chances are you too were at this year’s ToyNews Women of the Year awards.

The event, held at London’s Soho Hotel on Thursday, July 21st is now in its third year and has been set up to celebrate the achievements of women in the toy industry.

Toy executives flocked to the annual event to celebrate with this year’s winners, commiserate with this year’s runner ups and drink with and support this vibrant, passionate and dedicated sector of the industry.

And to prove that ToyNews were actually working on the day, we even took a few snaps from the event to help jog memories.
