The independent toy retailer, based in Kent, will now have access to Toymaster’s raft of top suppliers, its centralised invoicing system, free window displays and much more.

Billing itself as Kent’s most fun, exciting and interesting toy shop, Toys N Trends in Whitstable has become the latest independent toy retailer to join the Toymaster buying group.

Toys N Trends also offers free, same day delivery to Whitstable CT5 postcode and to Herne Bay CT6 postcode with just a £10 minimum spend, reflecting its ‘above and beyond’ approach to business and the relationships it has with its loyal customers.
