Described by one exec as a 'stand out lady in the toy business', Nicholls began her career with Chad Valley before co-founding Golden Bear with John Hales in 1979.

Over the years she has held various positions with several toy organisations and was also the first female chair of the BTHA.

One of the most respected execs in the toy business and a definite role model. One exec commented: "Christine always makes time for you."
