It's part 2 of our toyfair 2020 recap. Here are the novelties Simba Toys, Corolle and Eichhorn were presenting to visitors.
Simba Toys has a range dedicated to the style icon Hello Kitty, who was created in 1974 in Japan and is still hugely popular all over the world. The fashion dolls Steffi and Evi Love offer a new interpretation of the cult character. The Hello Kitty motifs are featured on the clothes, suitcases and accessories of each doll.
Evi Love is also a devoted vet. Designed for children aged 3 and above, the range includes an animal vehicle that can be turned into a vet clinic. In the stable, Evi is helping with the birth of a baby horse, while in the operating theatre she is examining a rabbit. Meanwhile, in the carry case the brown guinea pig is waiting for a carrot as a reward.
The French doll manufacturer Corolle was merged with the Simba Dickie Group in 2018. In France, the brand has been well-known for generations for its dolls with a delicate vanilla scent. In 2020 Corolle will launch its new “Mini Corolline” range, which will feature three different 20 cm dolls in a lovely designed gift box.
Eichhorn is famous for its classic toy wooden train sets. This year the toy manufacturer plans to realise the dreams of automotive fans with the launch of a wooden Porsche 911 sports car. The “Eichhorn Porsche Racing” series track features curves, spectator stands and archways to recreate the atmosphere of a real racing course. The Eichhorn Porsche Racing tracks are made of FSC® 100% certified beechwood (FSC® C005308) from sustainable forests.
