Christmas Toys Power Pitching Event

2nd November, 2023

On the 4th of October, we kicked off the month with the most adorable Power Pitching event of them all - our Christmas Toys Power Pitching event was a fun and exciting chance for journalists to check out the newest additions to the toy world that are certain to become a wonderful part of someone’s Christmas wishlist!

From cuddly plushies to mind-stimulating toys, we had all these amazing brands:

  • Boppi

  • Jazzwares

  • JustPlay Disney100

  • JustPlay Sesame Street

  • KAP Toys

  • The Card Factory

  • The Entertainer

We would like to thank The Entertainer for being the sponsor of this Power Pitching Christmas Toys event - thank you for helping us make magic happen!

Power Pitching is an excellent opportunity for media to pick up on the newest products, hottest launches, and most exciting trends that will make great headlines - and it’s an equally great chance for retailers to showcase their new products and get some useful connections. And not only is it useful but it is filled with joy and excitement! In the words of Phoebe Tonks, Digital Lifestyle and Features Reporter of OK! Magazine, ‘If only all work meetings could be this much fun!’.
