It’s that time of year when old colleagues descend on New York to cover the US ToyFair and my emotions fluctuate between nostalgic jealousy and wanting to tell the newcomers how they have it easy (in my day we had to cover as many as 80 companies over the week). I have little to do with the toy industry any more but I’m happy that once again I was asked to be a judge in the 2012 Poppies Awards. I’m pleased that there was a lot of consensus between the judges (although we do not confer) and a lot of my personal favourites were winners. Congratulations to both nominees and winners for some great sculpts, paint and manufacture this past year.
