Blue Frog Toys made its way into the homes of CBBC viewers across the UK last week as it appeared on popular children's show Trade Your Way to The USA.

Two teams from the show visited Blue Frog Toys to discover more about its range of animal masks.

The teams then had to decide which masks they thought they could sell best, negotiate on price and then go head to head selling as many as they could at the Imagine Festival on London's Southbank.

Owner of Blue Frog Toys, Simon Read, said: "We had a great day filming the show.

"The film crew, Siara the presenter and the kids were all great fun, although the kids were really tough in the negotiation room.

"We tweeted our 7,000 Twitter followers to let them know what time it would be on and had a brilliant reaction to the show."

The show is available to watch on BBC iPlayer until May 3rd.

Read added: "We wish every success to all the teams taking part in the show, and hope it helps them develop some excellent trading skills for the future, and that the winning team have a great time in the USA.

"We would like to thank Leopard Films and the CBBC for the opportunity to take part in Trade Your Way to The USA."
