David Walton to retire

Published on: 4th April 2016

2016 marks David’s 50th year in the toy trade, and he has contacted Toy World to announce that he has decided it’s time to retire.


He commented: “Freetime Int’l (H.K.) will be continuing, so it’s very much business as usual. Whilst I will be taking a back seat, I will continue to offer help and advice when required. The new contacts for UK retailers will be and, and they are both looking forward to meeting our customers and vendors, and maintaining the company’s long-term relationships. I would like to say goodbye to all the many friends I have made over the years in the toy business. Time goes by so quickly when you’re having fun, and I can hardly believe I’ve been playing with toys for a living for over 50 years.”

Toy World wishes David all the best in his retirement.
