Tobar has ‘significantly increased orders’ on Boppi the Booty Shaking Llama after surge in demand

Tobar has been forced to significantly increase its order the Boppi the Booty Shaking Llama, following a surge of interest in the product from retailers visiting this year’s London Toy Fair.

The UK distributor has had to reassure customers that it will have more stock on the way, reporting that it has been inundated with customer requests for the item.

Boppi the Booty Shaking Llama was showcased to attendees to London’s Toy Fair back in January as part of the Zuru Pets Alive collection distributed by the firm here in the UK.

Fiona Wood, Tobar’s buyer said: “There was huge interest in Boppi at the show and this has resulted in unprecedented pre-orders for the product. We knew Boppi would be popular but even so, have had to significantly increase our order and want to reassure customers that we have more stock on the way.”
