Toy Fair is an annual tradition in New York City where manufacturers and retailers gather to show their latest wares and upcoming projects. Lionel has a longstanding tradition of attending the event and this year’s booth was better than ever. So what did we display and what can you expect to see on your dealers’ shelves in the upcoming year? Here is a peak at the highlights.
We’ll have more details about these upcoming products when the catalogs come out next month.
2014 is a big year for The Polar Express™. Lionel devoted a full display tower to the line at Toy Fair.
From our LionChief™ Remote sets to gleaming gold scale Berkshires, The Polar Express will be showcased all across our product lines in 2014 as we celebrate the movie’s tenth anniversary. Look for some great new accessories in O, G and Little Lines as well.
Thomas and Friends™
A second tower showcased our Thomas and Friends™ product line – one of our most recognized brands. The addition of our wireless controls to Thomas has greatly improved its play value with young children. And for those who’ve already built up a large roster for their Sodor railways, Thomas will be joined by two new friends and more accessories in 2014!
Frosty the Snowman™
In what has to be the most fitting new license for us this winter season, Frosty the Snowman™ will join the Lionel crew for 2014. We showcased pre-production samples of new sets in both O and G Gauge at Toy Fair. Look for more news in the coming catalogs.
