Adds the green-fingered USA educational brand to its 2016 line-up - and you can see them at Toy Fair later this week!

Tobar has announced a distribution partnership with DuneCraft for the UK and Europe in 2016. The USA brand, which launched in 2002, has a simple goal to create fun, exciting terrariums grown from seed that will last for years, and encourage children’s interest in plants and nature. This unique collection is fun, educational and designed for children of all ages.

Tobar will take over the distribution rights for the DuneCraft range from Toy Essentials for the toy and gift trade for UK and Europe, while Toy Essentials has retained the distribution rights for the educational sector.

“Our team are delighted to be managing the distribution of DuneCraft in 2016,” said David Mordecai, CEO of Tobar. “This exciting range will boost our existing science and nature lines which proved very popular last year. DuneCraft sets make learning fun, the bright packaging and easy to follow instructions mean children and parents will love working on these sets together. The Tobar team sourced these fantastic new lines for 2016 which will boost customer sales both in store and online.”
