With the Retro packs making a comeback later this year and our celebration of 40 years of Top Trumps next year, we wanted to bring in an agency that has as much passion for our products and story as we do. I’m confident Playtime is a great fit with our team and that they have the creative backbone and media knowhow to tell our stories through a wide cross-section of diverse media channels.”
