Scholastic plans to expand further into the toy sector for 2013.

The firm's art and craft Klutz kits retail from £7.99 up to £14.99, and are already sold by a wide variety of retailers, including independent toy shops and High Street book shops, craft outlets, educational toy retailers and online.

Now the book specialist plans further growth within toys.

Sarah Burgess, key account manager at Scholastic Children’s Books, commented: “We would consider offering extra discount to new independent toy retailers who come on board, and we can also look at supplying spinners for display purposes and Klutz event kits for use in-store to familiarise customers with the brand.

“We would potentially consider becoming a member of Toymaster to help build business with the indie sector."
