  • Description

    CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR - AND IN LONDON THERE IS A LARGE DISPLAY OF CHRISTMAS TOYS AT A SPECIAL TOY FAIR WHICH WOULD BE ANY CHILD'S PARADISE. THERE ARE HOVERCRAFT THAT REALLY HOVER, TRAINS THAT CHUG IN AND OUT OF THE STATIONS AND TOWERS THAT REVOLVE.

    THE EXHIBITION REFLECTS THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE TOY INDUSTRY IN BRITAIN AND, WHILE ADULTS AND CHILDREN GAZED AT THE FASCINATING EXHIBITS, A SPOKESMAN FOR THE BRITISH TOY MANUFACTURER'S ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCED NEW RECORD EXPORT SALES IN THE INDUSTRY.

    HE SAID THAT, IN THE LAST TWELVE MONTHS, TOY EXPORTS WORTH GBP12 1/2 MILLION POUNDS STERLING HAD LEFT THE COUNTRY. HE ADDED THAT AUSTRALIA AND AMERICA TWO OF BRITAIN'S BEST CUSTOMERS. SPEAKING OF THE HOME MARKET THE SPOKESMAN SAID THAT "DESPITE STRONG COMPETITION FROM HONG KONG, GERMANY AND CHINA,THREE OUT OF FOUR TOYS SOLD ON THE BRITISH MARKET ARE BRITISH".

    THE FAIR, AT THE STRAND PALACE HOTEL, DISPLAYS ALL THE LATEST IDEAS IN CHILDREN'S TOYS.
