Always good to see the trends laid out for the year ahead. Great to see the simplicity of the Hornby Harry Potter layout prove that classic dexterous toys still have a place in the development of children’s imaginations and skills.Mark Kehoe Sunday Express
It’s great to see all the major toy makers under one roof and get a sense of what’s coming up for 2019, an opportunity to check out any products or trends that could be used as pegs for any potential news stories or features, and to find out what children will be playing with and hassling their parents for over the coming year. The fair is well laid out and organised too.Katie GrantThe i
