CARTAMUNDI TOY SUPPLIER
CARTAMUNDI IS the largest global manufacturer and market leader in playing cards and cards for games. The company was established in 1970 and since then it has continued to manufacture and supply quality playing cards to its customers, large and small, from the general public through to casinos, private label, cards for games, premium and promotional markets. The group generated sales in 2010 of 147.5 million Euro with a workforce of 1,200 and factories and sales offices all over the world. In 2008, the company was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year.
Thanks to its experience and specialist knowledge, the firm is able to continuously develop innovative cards and card games to further expand its range. Cartamundi has a new retail
range for 2012, with new licences and products including The Muppets, Animal Planet and Spider- man. 2012 will also see the 50th anniversary of James Bond, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and Euro 2012 and Cartamundi has products to commemorate all of these.
THUMBSUP HAS burst onto the toy scene with renewed vigour in 2012 after a brand refresh and considerable international expansion over the last year. Already established as a key

player in the global gifts market, ThumbsUp is now determined to make an impact on the competitive and innovative toy market with a wider product range for younger consumers. The decision to showcase its new range at this year’s Toymaster show reflects the firm’s excitement to be working with independent retailers, as well as a continued commitment to creative
and inspired development within the industry. New products in the portfolio include the iCrayon: developed by the in-house ThumbsUp team, the iCrayon is a true to life look-and-feel stylus for kids and adults alike – and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after touch screen accessories of 2012. With extra conductivity, precision and old- school charm, the tool is ideal for Draw Something fans. Other toy launches causing a stir this month are the Drum and Musical Playmats for youngsters looking to boost their musical
talents. The interactive mats let kids sing on a microphone headset, while adding to their favourite songs with a range of instruments. ThumbsUp’s team has also come up with the App Cube, a 21st century take on the iconic 4x4 puzzle... but four times more difficult. Watch the iGeneration squirm as they attempt to match up the icons and then realise they all need to face the same direction. Whether your customer is a Draw Something champion, future music mogul or problem-solver, ThumbsUp is offering something for everyone.
