As well as running the internationally successful doll firm, Cain is the UK Chair for the Women in Toys organisation.

The last 12 months have proved to be some of the most exciting in her firm’s history, having been awarded the Playdoll of the Year title by Dolls Magazine for the second year running for Lydia, Your Georgian Girl.

Cain also successfully embraced crowdfunding this year, raising £20,551 on Kickstarter to launch Your Modern Girl, a collection of contemporary dolls.

All this, and she has an appearance on Dragons’ Den in the pipeline too.
