From the 5th– 8th September we made our way to Birmingham to attend our second live event, and first trade show of the year, Autumn Fair!
It was wonderful to once again be able to connect with people face to face and showcase our range of board games, construction toys, brainteasers and jigsaw puzzles.
Front and centre on the Coiledspring stand was the brand new Wrebbit 3D installment, Ghostbusters ECTO-1. This iconic car from the classic film series coincides with the upcoming release of the new Ghostbusters movie and is sure to be the next collectible item in the fantastic Wrebbit 3D range.
We were also delighted to be exhibiting a wide selection of Schmidt jigsaws. As the jigsaw market continues to ride the high of the 2020 resurgence, puzzles are still a top gift giving pick for this year. Ranging from mind blowing abstract images, to quaint nature images and of course the well-known Thomas Kinkade: Disney collection featuring brand new releases Winnie the Pooh and Dumbo, there is something for every tabletop young and old!
In the gaming department, we showcased a selection of gift giving picks including Bandido, Sushi Go and Happy City. The highly anticipated Kingdomino Origins was a hit. This newest addition to the Kingdomino family transports this popular series back to pre-historic times! Many people stopped by the stand to grab a sneak peak of this fantastic game.
In the true gift giving spirit, we gave out plenty of the 50 Clues mini promotional game – The Home Temple. 50 Clues is a new release escape room style game, a perfect addition to any ‘adults only’ games night for the coming winter months! And we couldn’t forget the Wrebbit 3D flying Ford Anglia mini promo for fans to take home and piece together the magic!
At the show we launched our Autumn Supplement catalogue that is packed full of exciting new release games, puzzles and jigsaws ready to hit shelves in Q4! You can view the catalogue here.
We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone who was involved in bringing the fair to life and we look forward to more live events coming up in 2022.
