Globe Trotters

Howdy Bigjiggers. Apologies for the lack of blog posts in the past month, time seems to have evaded us in the past few weeks, especially as we have been showcasing our hundreds of new toys at toy fairs all over the world including the Hong Kong London, Nuremberg and New York toy fairs. The much anticipated 'toy fair' season gives manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors the chance to showcase their newest toys for 2013. As we had over 200 new lines, it was a big ask this year! If you have never been to a toy fair before - you are missing out!! (Just have a look at the pictures below) London Toy Fair - 22nd - 24th January 2013 Toy Fairs are extremely busy places with wholesalers and suppliers building and setting up their stand for the much anticipated arrival or retailers, press and customers. As you can see in the image below, there are hundreds of exhibitors all trying to promote their toys and gadgets all under one roof! [caption id="attachment_767" align="alignnone" width="590"] London Olympia - 2013[/caption] Our stand this year was bigger than ever (yet we still didnt manage to fit all of our wonderful toys on it!) Our Bigjigs Rail had a huge presence as it continues to be a crowd favourite. You can also see our brand new Track Stop Station which enables customers to purchase single pieces of track, so ask your local retailer next time you pop in their shop! [caption id="attachment_769" align="alignnone" width="590"] Bigjigs Stand - Bigjigs Rail[/caption] [caption id="attachment_770" align="alignnone" width="590"] Bigjigs Stand - London Olympia[/caption] [caption id="attachment_771" align="alignnone" width="590"] Bigjigs Stand - London Olympia[/caption] We were lucky enough to demonstrate several products including our brand new Around the World Train Set to ToyFairTV which was beamed around the show and on their website. Presented by Anna Williamson (from GMTV and CITV), our Laura got in amongst the action and explained this amazing new set and helped the 'Toy Testers' play with it. They gave it a credible 9/10! [caption id="attachment_772" align="alignnone" width="590"] Laura demonstrating at the Demo Zone - London Olympia[/caption] When Laura was not demonstrating products, she was busy meeting off meeting famous people including the Queen. [caption id="attachment_773" align="alignnone" width="590"] Laura met the Queen![/caption] and of course we all deserved a well earned drink at the end of the show!! [caption id="attachment_774" align="alignnone" width="590"] Areeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeba![/caption] Nuremberg Toy Fair - 30th - 4th February 2013 Like the London Toy Fair, Nuremberg is huge with manufacturers and suppliers from all over the globe showcasing their products to the European market. [caption id="attachment_776" align="alignnone" width="590"] Our stand at Nuremberg[/caption] New York Toy Fair - 10th-13th February 2013 Despite the huge snow fall in the North Eastern seaboard of the US, Liz and Sam made it to New York to showcase our new toys the American toy market. [caption id="attachment_757" align="alignnone" width="599"] Sam and Liz at the American Toy Fair[/caption] So after almost six weeks of Toy Fairs and Shows, our feet are firmly back on the ground! We will be announcing our new toys to the public very very soon :-)
