Football freestyler and Guiness World Record holder Dan Magness will be joining Jumbo Games at the firm's London Toy Fair stand this year.

Representing the brand's latest line of SoccerSuckers collectables, Magness will be making his appearance on Tuesday, January 21st.

Magness rose to fame when he set the Guiness World Record for longest distance walked while doing keepie-uppies, travelling 36 miles while keeping the football aloft in 2010.

He also earned a World Record for juggling a football for over 26 hours using his feet, thighs and head, and was the first person to perform at the new Wembley Stadium.

SoccerSuckers allows football fans to collect and build their own team of players for the top English clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Katherine Pierce, marketing manager at Jumbo Games, said: "Dan is one of the best football freestylers in the world and he is going to be one of the star attractions on our stand this year.

"He is a great character and certainly isn't a 'one trick pony', we are sure that he will keep visitors entertained with his incredible skills."

The dedicated website, Soccersuckers.co.uk features two games for football fans and collectors: Keepy Uppy and Beat the Goalie, a penalty shoot-out challenge. Jumbo will also be encouraging visitors to have a go at their own penalty shoot out at the event.
