We’ve started 2020 with a bang! The month of January saw children’s favourites including Batman, Peppa Pig and The Gruffalo take part in the annual character parade at Toy Fair 2020. The show also ran a dedicated Influencer Day for the first time where social media influencer's were invited to test out and review the toys and meet newcomers such as Big Boo from Sunny Bunnies.
Orinoco from The Wombles joined Boris Johnson in backing the Great British Spring Clean 2020, which is the country’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign taking place from 20 March – 13 April 2020. You can join in to support the campaign here: https://www.keepbritaintidy.org/home
Characters from the international children’s hit series Zafari were also brought to life. The colourful friends that celebrate diversity will travel to the Middle East where they’ll star in their first live shows, whilst the TV series continues airing on Tiny Pop in UK.
