Following this year's inaugural event, the firm is hoping to increase the number of visitors to next year's, which will take place on April 20th - 21st at its purpose-made showroom in Solihull.

The show will again have a park theme, but will feature a different grid-system layout.

Companies confirmed to exhibit so far include Flair, Playmobil, Ravensburger and RC2. This year's show attracted in excess of 70 toy suppliers.

The buying group, which formed when the demise of Youngsters shook up the independent retail landscape last year, says it has seen a very significant increase in membership numbers since last Aprilad is confident that the Play-Room at the Park show will be another significant milestone in its development.

Although last year's show was criticised by some exhibitors for the low volume of stand traffic, the group declared itself satisfied with its first toy show for more than 16 years and was confident it would build of the numbers with next year's event, inviting visitors from outside the AIS group as well.
