Last week I attend the 2016 Dream Toys event in London for the Top 12 Toys show.
This was my second time visiting and I wasn’t disappointed at all, not that I thought I would have been. It was a brilliant morning and was run perfectly by the Dream Toys Team. The brands there were awesome and some pretty darn good toys on show – I got so much inspiration for Christmas presents.
I also got to meet up with one of my gorgeous BFFs Vikki Love From Mummy who also had a fab time, we chatted to brands, saw super cool kids playing with toys and socked up all the
Christmassy festive goodness.
Thank you so much for having me Dream Toys, See you next year.
I wont chit-chat too much, I’m sure you guys want to know which toys were awarded as the top 12 Christmas toys of 2016 – without further ado.
