“2021 has really been about getting back on track for many businesses”

As we approach the end of the year, asks a selection of licensees from across various categories what their one biggest hope is for Christmas (professionally and personally) and what they are most looking forward to in 2022.

Today: Anthony Temple, md, Rainbow Designs.

“2021 has really been about getting back on track for many businesses in the nursery, toy and gift sectors. Without a doubt it has been a difficult couple of years for the sector as a whole and this has been exacerbated by the significant rise in the costs of bringing products into the UK.

So, my biggest wish for Christmas for the industry, would be to see an end to the freight cost extortion.

Personally though, I’m just really looking forward to spending the festive period with family and friends; something that we didn’t get to do last year.

As we look forward to 2022, I really can’t wait to get back to Toy Fair. It is a great show that was very much missed by the industry last year.”
