Speaking at the Reuters Consumer and Retail Summit in New York, Stockton said: "Toys tend to be a little less sensitive to economic pressures over time."

Stockton said the company had achieved its goal of boosting international sales to account for about 50 per cent of the total portfolio.

With that in place, despite fears of a widening debt crisis in Europe and a weakening Euro, the firm is still optimistic about its prospects in the territory this year.

"Given where Europe is today, we're still feeling pretty positive," Stockton said.
