The Toy Fair is a trade exhibition that is completely devoted to the fun filled hobby of toys and games. This event creates the opportunity for both start up companies and international leaders to display brand new toys to the market. Those within the industry will have the chance to try, test and explore new and exciting developments as well as network with other industry professionals. With the Toy Fair dating back to the 50's, the fair has seen the introduction of many memorable and popular toys. Lego made its first appearance in the 60's, The Wombles created a buzz in the 70's, My Little Pony became a successful girls toy in the 80's and the popularity of Thunderbirds' Tracy Island caused a stock shortage in the 90's. Visitors this year can delve into the exciting world of toys and discover who will be the next big player in toy town. The Olympia venue is easily reached via Kensington (Olympia) Tube Station and is connected to the District line and London Overground. For accommodation nearby, have a look at our Toy Fair hotel offers.

 

About Olympia London

Times have changed since the Olympia first flung open its doors to the public on Boxing Day 1886 for the Hippodrome Circus, with the promise of a spectacle involving 400 performers, 300 horses and six "funny" elephants. These days state-of-the-art equipment and a team of skilled in-house technical and support staff are on hand to help event organisers provide both trade and public shows that are top of their class.
