Hasbro UK have withdrawn from January 2016’s London Toy Fair according to a statement provided to Toy World.
A spokesperson from Hasbro UK told Toy World: “Hasbro will not be exhibiting at the next London Toy Fair due to the complexity of the global toy show calendar in 2016. As part of a global organisation we have had to make this tough choice to ensure we utilise our people and resources as efficiently as possible. We nevertheless continue to maximise support for Hasbro’s sales in the UK and remain committed to the toy industry. This is wholeheartedly demonstrated by our attendance at many of the other UK shows and events, our extensive showroom at our Stockley Park offices and our passionate involvement in the Industry’s charitable ventures. We would like to wish London Toy Fair 2016 every success.”
