Action man or a Football probably.
What is the one “special ingredient” that makes a great toy?
Longevity- one which encourages children to keep coming back time and again.
Other than your own, what toy brand really stands out to you today?
Lego for its timeless appeal and quality.
What was your best memory of Toy Fair?
Probably the customer at Fisher-Price who fell asleep on the stand whilst I was presenting to him – he did wake up and place an order….!!!

Work hard, enjoy the down time but get some sleep- customers don’t appreciate yawning, hungover sales teams!
