Dream Toys 2014 Media Launch Event

 I MET A STAR were once again thrilled to attend the fabulous annual dream toys event hosted by The Toy Retailers Association, where the ‘must have’ dream toys for Christmas 2014 were announced, displayed & demonstrated.


The team were delighted to bump into Diversity at the event and managed to say a quick hello. Their favourite toy?….. The Transformers Stomp and Chomp Grimlock, which they had been entertaining themselves with between photo shoots!


Priced at £89.99 and one of the Top 12 Toys with his electronic sounds, lights and pop out weapons, he’s a must have for all Transformers’ enthusiasts.


I MET A STAR focused on the products most suitable for our users and our absolute favourite was Dobble from Esdevium Games.


Dobble is completely addictive – we have all been playing it at every opportunity with colleagues, friends and family since the event.

To summarise: 2 or more players compete with each other to find the matching symbol between one card and another. Every card is unique and has only one symbol in common with any other in the deck. The match can be difficult to spot as the size and positioning of the symbols can vary on each card.  There are 5 mini games to play and the key to all of them is to be the fastest to spot the identical symbol between the two cards.

It’s pocket sized tin means you can slip it in your bag or even your pocket and take it wherever you go. It sounds complicated but it is so simple and quick, exciting and most importantly fun for all ages and therefore for us it’s our top toy this year and a bargain at RRP £12.99.


Next we loved these Minecraft action figures. With the Minecraft app so popular you can now combine your virtual world with the real world using these super animal mobs and figures. Featuring articulated action figures including the Creeper, Zombie, Enderman, sheep and cow, you can now collect and build your favourite minecraft characters. Featuring in The Top 12 Toy list this year and from £7.99 RRP these will make great stocking fillers for existing fans of the game.


Last year we loved the Chill Factor Slushy Maker – this year we were delighted to see the launch of their Ice Cream Maker RRP £12.99.

Easy to make ice cream and sorbet in a variety of flavours quickly and simply using everyday ingredients we’ll definitely be ordering one of these!


Hotel Tycoon from Esdevium Games RRP £24.99

 Lose yourself in the glamorous world of property development building luxury hotels and resorts in amazing locations. The 3D buildings make for an impressive visual board game. You’ll need to keep your wits about you to ensure you don’t go bankrupt. This is a great game to play with family and friends.


Lastly we can’t resist a bit of sparkle and absolutely loved this Disney Frozen Elsa Fancy Dress Costume RRP £14.99 from Rubies Masquerade UK. We just wished it came in a bigger size…..


Finally, as we’re all about celebs – it was good to see Anna Williamson enjoying the demonstration of the Top 12 Toy – Benny’s spaceship from The Lego Movie…



Dream Toys 2013 Media Launch Event

I MET A STAR were delighted to attend the annual dream toys event hosted by The Toy Retailers Association where the TOP TOYS for Christmas 2013 were announced, displayed & demonstrated.

I MET A STAR focused on the products most suitable for our users and believe us there were some crackers!

Our favourite, of course, has to be the 3rd edition’ One Direction Fashion Dolls’ (RRP £16.99) The boys chose the outfits themselves, based on what they wore in their comic relief performance earlier in the year. These 12″ dolls are fab, very realistic and simply gorgeous – our favourite? If we must – Louis, but don’t tell the others!
A must have for fans of Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall & Zayn!

One Direction Dolls from Vivid

Our other hot tip, or should we say cool tip, is the ‘Chill Factor Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker’. We’ve ordered ours already – we were so excited!
This ingenious product is so simple and quick to use and at just £12.99 RRP it’s a bargain. You simply chill the cup in the freezer then poor in your choice of drink, be it juice, fizzy drink, milkshake or a cocktail. Then squeeze for a few moments to produce instant slush. It’s simply BRILLIANT!

Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker from Character Options

Next up is the new edition of the ever popular Monopoly – Monopoly Empire. It’s all about big brands – coca-cola, McDonald’s XBOX etc and it looks great fun!

Monopoly Empire from Hasbro

Another one we think you’ll love is Bop-It! Tetris. A great combination of the two games = hours of fun!

Bop-It! Tetris from Hasbro

Lastly we couldn’t forget Furbys – the new ‘Boom!’ not only looks great but interacts amazingly with the free on-line app!

Furby Boom! from Hasbro

Have Fun!
