London Toy Fair 2013 Video Report

05525a1e-4338-49b4-b478-2cfd9b8ea8aa
The London Toy Fair is the biggest toy event in the UK and gives manufacturers from around the globe the opportunity to showcase their latest items. This year there were more than 230 exhibitors, including recognisable names such as Corgi, Oxford Diecast, Meccano, plus thousands of toys on display. Of course, the only problem for collectors is that the Toy Fair is a trade-only event that's normally shrouded in mystery! Well, fret not because we snuck in our video camera (disguised as a giant LEGO brick) to give you an exclusive behind the scenes look at the fantastic events.

So, make sure you watch the video below to see new releases from Oxford Diecast, an exciting new model railway app from Hornby, a huge range of TV/film memorabilia from distrbutor Amerang and some excellent model kits from Sluban. Also, we couldn't quite squeeze everything into this video because it would have been too long, so make sure you watch our London Toy Fair Extra report covering some more items from Meccano, Corgi and more!
