Favourite toys: K-Nex, Meccano, Pogs! My eldest son’s favourite toys include VTech’s Toot Toot range (he loves it!), Gadget the robot, board games such as Destination Junior, Monopoly, and a number of Orchard Toys learning games. He loves Despicable Me!
Sports team: Manchester City, I’m a massive football fan, for a few years I have been a season card holder with my dad. I have to watch every game. I went through all of my school life being a laughing stock for supporting City, I don’t see them laughing now (mainly because I don’t see anyone from school, apart from a Leeds United fan who I feel sorry for!).
Likes: Spending time with my family and my boys Olly and Oscar.
With over 10 years in publishing, working across daily/weekly newspapers, monthly/bi-monthly magazines amongst a number of other platforms, the toy industry is by far my favourite, having two young children it is the perfect industry to be involved in.
