The Ninky Nonk Train has surpassed all expectations in its first weeks of sales. The train consists of four separate carriages, each with its own features and styling including the Spinning Shape Sorter Carriage and the Stacking Blocks Carriage. The carriages can be bought together as one train or separately as standalone pull-along playsets.

Barry Hughes, Golden Bear’s general manager, says the company anticipates that the line will deliver over £2m at retail in the first six months.  “We are therefore planning to go back on TV in Q1 2015 once we have further stocks in the country. This line is superb and we are really proud of the play value it brings to In the Night Garden fans. We advise retailers to get these orders in as soon as they can and we will do the best we can to accommodate.”
