The Independent Toy & Gift Show will return next year on Tuesday 21 April and Wednesday 22 April 2020.

The annual event, designed with the Independent retailer in mind, attracts a wide range of professional buyers including those from department stores, toy and gift shops, garden centres and leisure attractions. 

Visitors can expect a range of unique opportunities, including bespoke offers, merchandising solutions and, most importantly, access to the most prominent toy and children’s gift suppliers.


Exhibitor bookings will open to plaY-room preferred suppliers in October.

The theme for 2020 is Wooden Toys, celebrating the classic play patterns and aspirational attributes of toys made of natural materials. Ravensburger is sponsoring the café and will be showcasing its popular Brio range.


Accessing the show is simple: the venue at Cranmore Park is conveniently located just off junction 4 of the M42, close to Birmingham’s NEC.

Hosted by plaY-room, the toy division of buying group Associated Independent Stores, the show is open to all independent toy and children’s gift buyers and is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and relaxed buying environment.
