Every year there are some brands that we know are going to have to keep huge stocks of to keep up with demand. So, we got together and identified the 5 brands that are going to be flying off the shelves this year – just in case you need some inspiration for birthdays and treats.
LOL Surprise was the breakout brand of 2018, perplexing parents with its strange kitsch appeal and its ability to get kids excited about collectables they hadn’t even seen. Did you know there’s even a trend of “unboxing videos” to show mini superstars unwrapping their LOL Surprise toys? LOL stands for “Little Outrageous Littles” and parents might think they’re bizarre, but there’s a method in the LOL madness – collectables give kids a purpose and help their organisational skills.
This phenomenon is going nowhere, and it’s not just about LOL Surprise dolls anymore. Kids are lapping up LOL Surprise accessories like they’re gold dust and we’re here to help. We’ve got a feeling that this are going to carry on being huge in 2019 so we’re readying the shelves to hold all the LOL loot. As ever with the Pound Toy range, we’ve got plenty of pocket money friendly gifts that are great for treats and rewards. Get your kids some outrageous accessories and get clued in to our biggest brand tip for 2019.
If we said that 2019 was going to be another incredible year for Disney films, we still think we’d be underestimating a little. When you’ve got live-action reboots of Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King to look forward to, that’s one strand of brilliant. If you throw in Toy Story 4, you’re getting into the level of amazing. But if we point out that Frozen 2 is going to be released at the end of the year? That’s into the stratosphere, and the kids are going to be bouncing off the walls throughout 2019.
Of course, Pound Toy are ready and waiting to deliver all your Disney toys and accessories. We’ve already got a heap of Disney goodies on our website, right from Disney Princess Blind Bags up to some awesome Disney Cars merchandise to get little racers zooming around all over the place. As 2019 goes on, our range is just going to get bigger and bigger, so don’t miss out on grabbing those essential Disney accessories for a magnificent Disney year.
Yes, we’re cheating slightly because Marvel is part of the Disney brand, but it definitely merits its own mention. 2019 sees the release of Avengers: Endgame which promises to be a blockbuster. For any kid (or big kid) interested in the Marvel Universe, we predict 2019 is going to be a great year for movie tie-ins and all-round Marvel fun.
Safe to say, we’ve already stocked up on some quality Marvel merchandise and there’ll be plenty more to come. Spiderman is huge in the store right now, but Spidey’s not the only member of the Avengers gang. Keep an eye on the Pound Toy website all throughout 2019 for all the cool Marvel toys that’ll make fans of all ages swoon.
Again, a small cheat happening here but, really, Star Wars doesn’t just need its own section, it needs its own article. The rejuvenated Star Wars films of recent years have resulted in a massive appreciation for all the films, meaning that the thirst for merchandise and accessories has never been higher. In case you needed another reason to think that Star Wars was going to be huge in 2019, don’t forget the release of Star Wars: Episode IX slated for December.
So, why not get ahead of the curve by stocking up on the goodies now to get the kids into the mood? Prepare yourself and take a look at our website for some amazing Star Wars toys. The enduring appeal of Yoda (not to mention the storm troopers) will have everyone in the family singing the theme music before too long.
Little kids love Paw Patrol – there’s no denying it and that means the search and rescue team is going nowhere. We can’t help but love Marshall, Chase and Skye, not to mention Ryder and the rest of the gang. They’re nice and wholesome companions for little ones to grow with, so it’s no surprise that 16% of children in a 2016 Sky survey said that Paw Patrol was their favourite programme. And you know what that means? Paw Patrol tie-ins are vital for happy little households.
Fortunately, Pound Toy have you covered with our brilliant range of Paw Patrol toys and games. As well as fantastic gifts and bubbles, we’ve also got a great set of products for the home including meal time and bath time fun. Basically, if there’s a Paw Patrol fan in your home, you’ll be able to find something on the Pound Toy site that you love.
