Toy Fair 2015

Toy Fair 2015

I took myself down to the Toy Fair 2015 for a full day of looking feeling and listing to all the toys ready to hit the consumers market for Spring Summer and Autumn Winter 2015. It was a ridiculously long but very exciting day for me. I usually attend clothing trade shows for Port Avenue like Bubble London and Pure London so I thought I knew what I was expecting to see.
I was blown away as soon as I walked through the door – I’ve never attended a trade show on my own so I was extremely anxious and overwhelmed but that soon disappeared as I started making my way around each stand and talking to the amazing people behind the brands.

I didn’t manage to stop at all the stands unfortunately (maybe next year I might do 2 days) I wanted to but I did stop by most of the ones I wanted to. I’m amazed at what these companies have come up with each season in mind, it’s brilliant. A lot of the stands I visited had prototypes so I couldn’t take photos but I’m sure later in the year I can share with you the wonders they have put together.

Keep your eyes peeled for John Crane, Playmobil, Vtech, Sambro, WOW Toys, Milly & Flynn, Plum, Trunki and Kidsme. Some of these brand’s I’ve never heard of before so it was great to see the passion people put into the brands that they represent. I was completely blown away by all the new products coming out from VTech including a soft Crawl and Learn ball!

Below are a few snaps from the lovely John Crane – I really didn’t want to leave their stand absolutely love everything from their B. range. Wooden toys are HUGE deal and making a massive come back (did they ever disappear) move over digital wood back in the main frame.

Check out Playmobil paying homage to the iconic London landmark with their first-ever Ferris Wheel. I even got to touch it – it so fregging cool – lights up and is electrically controlled. I spent so long in their stand thank you Sartika for the low down on everything … I have officially falling in love with the brand – I’ll write-up a separate post on all they have to offer this coming year! Don’t forget to check out the video of Hayden playing with their Christmas 2014 collection below the photos.

Remember you heard it from me first – keep an eye out for Kidsme they have an adorable and ridiculously innovative collection of weaning products – I wish I was vlogging the day as I these photos don’t do their products much justice and I was too busy chatting away to get more images. The diamond-shaped bottle is amazing seriously heading to a baby shower … show up with that gift you have won the prize (if there is one) hands down.

They even had their own TV show for the three days that the fair was on. 
The kids being filmed were awesome answering all the questions and giving their comments – bless them!
