7. Fashion Angels Bow Wowzer Wall Décor Kit

Fashion Angels HeadCase

Okay, so perhaps this product isn’t new to 2017 however, we launched the Fashion Angels range 4Q 2016 so it still counts right? This super cool Décor Kit makes for perfect rainy day play! Featuring 33 decorative gems, glitter applicator and more, creative fingers will love being able to make their Bow Wowzer their own!

8. SmartLab Demolition Lab: Wrecking Ball

SmartLab Demolition Lab Wrecking Ball

The Demolition Lab: Triple Blast Warehouse has been a great success throughout 2016, so it was a natural next step to introduce the Wrecking Ball! Build an abandoned building and then strategically place the wrecking ball to knock it down. Kids get hands-on experience experimenting with potential and kinetic energy, momentum, and other principles of physics.

Check out this awesome video showing the Wrecking Ball in action!

9. Scentco Disney Princess Gel Crayons

Scentco Disney Princess Gel Crayons
Disney Princess is set to be a huge license this year, so it’s a good thing we expanded our Scentco Disney Princess Licence! These gel crayons are super smooth and gel like consistency can be compared to highlighters, anyone stationery fan who try’s them out falls in love!


10. Breyer Model Horse Starry Night

Breyer Model Horses Starry Night Set

Another favourite from Breyer is the Starry Night! This eye catching beauty is 4th in a series of Classics decorator model horses. Both the mane and the tail glitter with stardust, a sure hit for 2017!


So, that’s our top 10! What are your thoughts? We are going to be showcasing our new ranges at the following upcoming shows in January and February: Toy Fair London, NEC Spring Fair and BETA International. See you there!
