Educational specialist, Orchard Toys has enjoyed another strong year in 2014, with the firm registering growth in the pre-school sector.

Orchard Toys has launched three new items in Can You Guess, Cake Monster and Big Dinosaurs, enjoying greater recognition as a result.

“We are delighted to report that 2014 has been another great year for Orchard Toys, with particularly strong sales predicted in the final quarter,” Simon Newbery, Orchard Toys’ managing director, told ToyNews.

“Not only that, the brand awareness is increasing and feedback from retailers indicates that their customers love Orchard Toys.

“Retail is without a doubt getting tougher and more competitive in general and the pre-school market is no exception to this. However irrespective of this, we are still experiencing growth in this sector.”

Looking forward, Orchard Toys is hoping to replicate the success of 2014 with a new product line up being unveiled in January.

“We are entering 2015 with great anticipation and high expectation,” continued Newbery.

“These include an exciting line-up of new products for January and a number of other products in development for release later in the year.

“Additionally, we will shortly be announcing news of other developments to the range, but you’ll have to wait to hear more about these.”
