Pop stars McFly "tried to steal" a giant Predasaur prop from The In Thing stand at Toy Fair this week.

It was all light-hearted fun of course, and Dougie and Tom from the band ended up leaving with foil pack toys from the distributor instead.

The In Thing's head of marketing Kieran Murphy told ToyNews: "They had tweeted that they were coming down and I knew Dougie was a huge fan of dinosaurs, so we made sure they came by our stand and checked out Predasaurs. 

"I didn’t expect them to try and steal our giant dinosaur prop! They seemed happy enough when we let them take as many Predasaurs foil packs as they wanted. They said they’d pass them on to the rest of the band."
