Toys are an important part of growing up and there's more to the Value of Play than meets the eye. Choosing the right toy can be a mission as play can mean different things to different people and the types of toys that inspire play is limitless. Sometimes, listening to the experts can be invaluable to guide parents and professionals in regard to the universal value of play.

You'll find all your needs under one roof at the Fair and there's a few new exhibitors bringing their products for your first peek at the goods. It's not just toys you'll see as new exhibitor Ocean Peak Australia, a trusted supplier of officially licensed Elvis Presley merchandise to retailers in Australia and New Zealand can attest to.
