Garsons picks up prestigious Toy Award

by | Mar 26, 2019 | Community, Independents, News | 0 comments


The National Toy Industry Awards has recognised Garsons for the magic and theatre it provides to its younger customers. 

It is the first time the family-run business had entered the prestigious awards. 

A panel of judges from across the industry judged the list of finalists. BTHA members, toy agents and toy retailers were asked to enter. Garsons impressed the judges with ‘in-store theatre and magic for children’. They bestowed a judges’ special recognition award.

Sarah Crees, gifts and Christmas buyer, said: “We’re delighted with this award. To enter the Toy Industry Awards for the first time and come away with this recognition is a huge achievement. 

“Our toy department has gone from strength to strength and is now one of our most successful departments. “We are always seeking out new toy innovations, thinking ahead and striving to enhance our toy department.

“Our specialist team are aware of what’s new, about to hit the market and what’s proving to be top on gift lists.”
The toy department caters for all ages. It has an extensive range of well-known brands and children’s characters.
It also has smaller not-on-the-high-street games and toys.

The displays get brought to life with a moving and roaring dinosaur. Giant plush giraffes and safari animals that create a magical environment.
