The Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair in Nürnberg is the largest international trade fair for toys and games held annually since 1949. The Toy Fair is held each year for 6 days and approximately 2800 exhibitors from around 60 countries attend. Not only are the big brands such as Mattel, Lego and Hasbro present, but many smaller independent companies take the opportunity to take part in the event.
This year Bruce Hay our Drake Collectibles Business Development Manager shared a booth with WSI, our new European Distributor who are based in the Netherlands. Some of the Drake Collectibles models on display were the new 12x8 Steerable Trailer, C509’s, Cranes and MaxiTrans Flat Tops. These were received well with attendees,“blown away” by the detail. Ian Webb from Cranes Etc who visited the Drake Collectibles booth presented Bruce the “Model of the Year” award for the Kenworth C509 and Drake 5x8 Trailer. Ian said that, “This line of models of Australian trucks and trailers is really setting the pace”. Ian also commented on the “top quality presentation” of the new Steerable model and was impressed by the MaxiTrans freightliner, particularly that all the gates are made out of metal.
Although the temperature gage displayed below 0 degrees at times, Bruce was warmed by the success of the show, and how compared to any other model of this type, in terms of detail, design and quality, we are head and shoulders above the rest.
