“Positives for us are that L.O.L. Surprise is holding up really well at retail and continues to hold good listings in the girls’ area. We have also had a great early response to National Geographic for which the product has an eco-friendly message wherever possible.
Our David Walliams collection is about to go live and we have good expectations for this running up to Christmas.
The negatives are the general nervousness on the high street, coupled with weak exchange rates makes trading very challenging at the moment.”
