Nurenburg Toy Fair February 2006

The Nurenburg Toy Fair is by far the largest toy fair in the world, with about 4,000 stands. Started in 1950, the idea of holding it in February was to give a sufficiently long lead time so that orders could be delivered by Christmas. These days a lot of manufacturing is pretty quick, and you can go to Autumn toy fairs where they can still deliver in time for Christmas. However the Nurenburg toy fair remains the one fair that nearly all buyers go to - it is too important to miss!

We visited the toy fair in February 2006, and saw a number of new and interesting toys. Half a dozen of which we have put together into a video for you to enjoy.

April 2006 update. We now stock the Polyorama or Myriorama.
