Frederique Tutt, Toys Global Industry Analyst for The NPD Group said that the British and Irish toy markets are leading the resurgence in toy sales in Europe.

“Impulse sales of collectables and lower-priced toys are up as well as licenses from movies including Frozen, and this year’s craze; Loom Bands,” said Mr Tutt.

“These two factors combined delivered the fastest growth rate in toy sales since 2010 (+6%) in the first nine months of 2014 which suggests that Christmas 2014 might be the best for some time.”
