New Year, new toys


THE NEW YEAR represents a fresh start for many, so we’re looking ahead at toys that are likely to be new and innovative this year.


We will be getting our hands on these to test if we haven’t already and we will be on the look out for more exciting new products


THE PLAYAWAY CASE Is it a toy? Is it luggage? Well, it’s both. We love the versatility and attention to detail that has gone into the design of these cases and they were flying off our stand at the Ideal Home Show in November, so they are going to be a must have for all young adventurers, whether travelling by car, train or plane.


KARISMA KIDZ The interactive dolls are not yet available on the market, but we predict that when they are launched, they’ll skyrocket. The unique approach to emotional development is innovative and exciting and the combination of online and offline activities and products suggests that Karisma Kidz will be a brand to keep an eye on in 2014.


HARUMIKA INTERIOR DESIGN We love the new Interior Design Harumika from Bandai. As we write this, it is with our testers, but initial feedback is excellent so expect to see it on the site very soon.


at Toy Fair, so get in touch to book an appointment if you are yet to do so. Developers of new toys have a hard time breaking


IN ASSOCIATION WITH


As the toy industry bubbles with the excitement of another year, Dr Amanda Gummer kicks off 2014 with a look at those products delighting the team in the months ahead


into a very competitive market, but we found some gems that we think will do well, as well as some from existing manufacturers.


OIDROIDS OiDroids, the collectable, ‘pop-out and build’ robot figures have the potential to be a new playground craze. Our testers thought they were great but with playground crazes it’s all about reaching that tipping point. Watch this space…


OUR ONES TO WATCH FOR 2014 ARE:


THE RC ILLUMINATED SOLAR SYSTEM The RC Illuminated Solar System from Brainstorm is not strictly a ‘toy’. But as we revamp our website and include other products that help children develop we think this will be a great product this year.


PEPPA PIG WEEBLES We just loved Weebles as kids and we think this is a great fit for Peppa in 2014. However, all this newness doesn’t mean that


we are not still passionately shouting about classic toys and established brands. We are, but we quite fancy ourselves as trend spotters too so remember, you heard it here first.
