The latest in toy trends, the hottest new playthings, as well as full-scale toys came to in a vibrant play space in Melbourne for the 2012 Australian Toy Hobby and Nursery Fair, 6 to 9 March.
Attracting some of the industry’s biggest names including Hasbro, Lego, Moose and Toyworld, over 6,000 retailers, wholesalers, promoters and marketers to pass through the exhibition doors during the four day event.
Paul Hodgson, Australian Toy Association (ATA) General Manager, said the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be transformed to a child’s play haven for the world class event.
“This year’s Fair is set to impress the young, and the young at heart, with a dynamic demonstration of the most coveted toys, newest developments and overseas crazes,” said Mr Hodgson.
“It also presents an opportunity to determine what’s hot in the world of toys as ATA announces the highly anticipated Product of the Year Award. These Awards act as a benchmark for identifying the next toy phenomenon,” he said.

Each year the ATA organises a toy collection for charity on the last day of the Fair and the Exhibitors donate toys to this annual toy collection. In 201, the recipient of these toys is Variety – the Children’s Charity.
The ATA is proud of their association with Variety and are looking forward to putting smiles on Australian children's faces.
One of these donated toys was recently presented to Tayla McCallum and her family. The 14ft Vuly Trampoline will provide hours of fun for Tayla and her sister Jenna. Due to her condition, Tayla has very low muscle tone and a trampoline will provide a great opportunity for her to exercise, develop her dexterity and provide a further activity that can involve the whole family.
