The International Autumn Fair hosts the biggest and best collection of children’s gifts and that’s why I’ll be there this weekend!
Not only will I be looking for the latest crazes for Christmas, but a whole lot more besides. I just can’t wait to look at all the new exciting gifts for kids.
Every September the gift fair is held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK and it’s the ideal opportunity for retailers to go and view all the season’s new products. I will, of course, be focusing on gifts for children aged 4 to 12. There will be loads of fun, cool gifts for kids and I am sure that I’ll be spoilt for choice! One thing you can be certain of is, that there will be a fabulous range of new kids’ gifts on the what to buy for kids website this coming year.
As always, at the trade fair, there will be thousands of stands with exhibitors demonstrating all the new gifts they have on offer. This year there are more then 1,500 UK and International exhibitors, so it really is well worth a visit. Big names like Aroma Home, Intelex, Aurora, NPW, Cheatwell Games, Gift Republic will all be present.
So I will be joining the droves of other retailers in search of fantastic new kids’ gifts to sell in the run up to Christmas. A little bird told me that My Pillow Pets are due to launch more exciting fun designs, the Rainbow Unicorn Pillow Pet being one of them! I think Pillow Pets could well be the number one gift for kids this Christmas.
But who knows? With over 60,000 new product launches, there most certainly will be lots to choose from.
Will you be there? Let us know if you find the ideal children’s gift for Christmas 2012.
