As previously reported, this year’s event, which offers up exclusive previews of hot new product and the opportunity to meet others in the industry up close and personal, has sold out exhibitor space, with more than 250 signed up spread across the Grand and National halls, with the Greenhouse Area set aside for innovative start-ups.
The BTHA said the fair, in its 69th year, is gearing up to be the biggest yet. Attendees from the past three shows will receive a smart link to their existing profiles, making signing up even easier.
Exhibitors, from big to smaller suppliers and from returning companies to brand new names will include Character Options, Golden Bear Toys, Hasbro, Gibsons, LEGO, Posh Paws International, KAP TOYS, tonies®, Magic Box Toys, Just Play, Playmonster, Smiffys, Kikkerland and Marvin’s Magic.
Hayley White, Toy Buyer at B&M said: “It’s great having so many of our suppliers under one roof, meaning that we can optimise our time and have multiple meetings in a day. We love the buzz of the hall and look forward to hearing everyone’s whispers of what will be the next big thing.”

Dominique Peckett, director at Smiffys commented: “We’re excited to be exhibiting at Toy Fair in London this coming January. We see this event as a massive opportunity for us to be able to show all our fantastic new lines and licenses we’ve been working on this past year. Toy Fair is the perfect platform to reach new retailers and buyers. It will be great to be able to connect with existing and new customers in the toy industry face to face in the UK.”

We’re proud to be the UK’s largest dedicated toy, game and hobby show and understand how important it is for our exhibiting companies and visitors to have face-to-face meetings with contacts across the industry, to help nurture, build and forge those relationships for the year ahead. With thousands of new and exciting products across all categories being showcased, buyers, retailers and the media are in for an inspiring and memorable show.”
