The Toy Retailers Association has released its ‘Dream Bakers Dozen’ list at this year’s Dream Toys event. It was a bustling event as journalists and children


were keen to fi nd out more about these hero products. Hasbro were thrilled to get an amazing four products on the list this year with Furby, Nerf N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire, Web shooting Spider-man and Twister Dance all making the Dream Toys list. It was an exciting day all round with Chris Spalding,


Managing Director and Senior Vice President for EMEA and Australasia at LeapFrog, commenting on their win: “To secure placement in the 2012 ‘Dream Dozen’ for LeapPad2 is a true testament to the product’s high quality and innovation. With recent industry sales fi gures demonstrating LeapFrog’s position as one of the fastest growing top 15 toy manufacturers*, we now


turn our attention to Christmas and expect to witness continuous growth throughout the festive period.” Meanwhile Playmobil, whose Car Ferry with Pier made it onto the Pre-School Top Toys for Christmas list were also very happy to be included. “I think Dream Toys went quite well and we were pleased to be a pre-school top toy for Christmas,” Jamie Dickinson, Marketing Manager for Playmobil said. “It was just unfortunate that the relocation of BBC offi ces and the current news of the New York hurricane meant some of the broadcast focus was shifted from the event, but there was a good turnout from print media nonetheless.” The list includes 13 products which are anticipated to be the top sellers for this Christmas.
