The company also presented its London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games product, and in support of this, the distributed Royal Mint London 2012 coin collection.

Nat Southworth, sales and marketing director, commented: "2012 is an exciting year for us as a nation, and as a company we enter the year with much to be excited about.

"As a team we’ve worked incredibly hard to have an enticing range. We’ve signed up with some great partners and after a successful Hong Kong toy fair we arrive in London ready to show our UK & Eire customers that Hornby has the products that deserve a place on their retail shelves.

"No other company boasts the heritage, quality, attention to detail and recognition by every age of consumer that our brands do. It’s going to be a busy year."
