Great Gizmos will unveil new collections at Toymaster this year, including new lines from NICI, Plan, Geospace and 4M.

The Geospace range features soft foam rockets that can be launched indoors or out.

The new pocket money priced Geospace Finger Flinger is a 'modern update of the slingshot' and lets kids perfect their target practice.

The Air Thrusterz is an air powered launcher that sends a rocket plane soaring up to 50 feet and the Jump Rocket Triple Shotz has three adjustable launch tubes that will blast off into different directions when kids jump on the launch pad.

Elsewhere, the Plan Toys wooden range features clutching toys for babies through to vehicles and doll houses for older kids. The Croquet Set includes wickets, mallets and four wooden animal balls, whilst the Full Set of Mini Golf can be played indoors or out and features wooden golf clubs, wooden balls and three challenging tracks.

NICI's collection of luxury plush toys and accessories this year features Veterinarian Minilina, a soft doll who loves to tend to her animals. Other new ranges include Summer Elephant and Pelican, a Sea Monster in Creatures and Welcome to the Jungle as well as a cute collection of Gorilla and Turtle character inspired plush.

The 4M science kits has a focus on recycling projects this year. The Tin Can Calculator will make a calculator work by completing the circuit using only a can while the Dynamo Circuit Board teaches children about how electricity is generated.

Also on display will be 4M’s extensive craft kits and the Zoob construction range.
