The Puppet Company and Wilberry Toys
Stand: Hall 20 H51
Now in its 22nd year, The Puppet Company – and its sister company, Wilberry Toys – is a key player in the gift and toy world. This family-run business promotes creative play: the products are about children and adults alike being inspired to tell stories, to ignite their imagination and to make people smile.
The supplier has a number of exciting new products to introduce to buyers at Autumn Fair, from its new licensed Elmer puppets, to a Christmas range that will delight children and adults alike.
The Elmer products from The Puppet Company encourage speech and language development in young children and inspire them to embrace the wonder of the world we live in. The items have been designed to be especially accessible and affordable.
Suitable from birth, the Elmer My First Puppet is made from soft materials, and has embroidered eyes – all tested to the highest possible standards. The Puppet Company has also created a stand-alone Finger Puppet Elmer, so you can carry him with you wherever you go – perfect for pockets and adventures!
This is the first licensing deal that The Puppet Company has taken, with more announcements to follow, and the company is thrilled to have started with such a favourite.
Launching at Autumn Fair will be a new range of full-bodied animal puppets, which includes a cockapoo, a penguin, and a golden retriever. Inspired by consumer demand and retailer feedback, the team at The Puppet Company is keen to see how people respond to the collection at the show.
Christmas is an important season for The Puppet Company and Wilberry Toys, and preparation begins in earnest early in the year. There will be two new additions to the festive offering from the company at Autumn Fair, however: Reindeer and Father Christmas.
These puppets will make perfect festive gifts, and will hearten young and old to use their imaginations and engage in creative play on Christmas Day and beyond.
