The company’s EMEA licensing director gives her thoughts on the big trends for the year.

It’s now February, and there have been numerous reports on the key trends, brands, films and retailers to watch for this year.

“I also think that PAW Patrol, Pokémon, super heroes – check out our LEGO Batman range – and Star Wars to continue strongly.”
