The recent resignation of Gary Grant from the TRA is unfortunate and unnecessary.

I understand the view of Toymaster and applaud it for speaking up for its members, but to question Grant’s commitment to the TRA and accuse him of a conflict of interest seems, from the outside, a little harsh.

Grant has worked very hard for the good of the industry as a whole and is never afraid to put his head above the parapet. Dream Toys wouldn’t be the media event it is without Grant’s drive and energy. Also, when the shit hits the fan, Grant is there to help calm the waters whenever the papers try to drag something up just as Christmas is coming.
