Roger Martin, MD, added: "Toy Fair has given us an opportunity to get feedback from our retail partners, not just about how well they are performing in store, but also the way children have been engaging with the characters and feeding them their worries.

"We're confident that Sorgenfresser will enjoy the level of success they are enjoying in Germany, where they are the number one selling licensed plush."

Second place was awarded to Paw Patrol from Spin Master, while third was Nano Quad from Revell.

"We'd like to say a big thank you to all of the journalists who attended Toy Fair and who took the time to vote in the Editors' Choice awards - it's always interesting to see what product launches catch the eye of the media who attend the fair," said Majen Immink, senior communications manager for the BTHA.
