What will you be showcasing?

Keep your eyes peeled for the latest in the Rory’s Story Cubes Mix sets: Medic, Score and Intergalactic, pocket money additions that add specific themes to your storytelling.

Batman Cubes will also be available for a sneak preview, while there are also two new additions to the John Deere jigsaw range for 2015. The success of the Sorgenfresser Worry Eaters continues to build, and Schmidt have introduced junior versions of characters Betty, Bill and bestseller Flint.

Will you be running any special show offers?

Retailers who place an order with us at the show will be entitled to an exclusive offer on our three bestselling classic Sorgenfresser, Saggo Polli and Flint – buy 48 of two characters and get 12 of the third free.

Why is Toymaster such an important event?

It’s a fantastic opportunity to see all of the Toymaster members together. It’s a great mid-year event to showcase the latest products and it’s also an important social occasion where you get to mix with everybody.

How important are the indie toy stores to you?

They are very important, especially to a company like us where we have a mix of licensed and niche products. The indie stores are set up for exactly that kind of product mix.

Best Toymaster memory?

Having a conversation with one of our longstanding customers and only realising who it was halfway through because her costume was so fantastic.
