Toy Barnhaus Wins at The Toy Retailer of the Year Awards

Toy Barnhaus won at the prestigious Toy Retailer of the Year Awards. This annual Toy Industry Awards evening was held at Olympia, London, on Tuesday 21st January 2020 and Toy Barnhaus was awarded “2019 Independent Multi Store Toy Retailer of the Year (up to 10 stores).

Toy Barnhaus has a store on the upper floor of the Whitgift Centre, so we took the opportunity to ask them some in-depth questions, as experts in the industry.

  1. What are the most popular toys in Toy Barnhaus Croydon?

Our Croydon customers love all our toys, but are particularly fond of LOL dolls, and anything Lego goes down very well.

  1. Are there any exciting new toys on the horizon?

We have seen lots of new toys at Toy Fair, some of which are top secret and we cannot say anything about yet! However, there are several exciting lines, including new Minions and Trolls lines for the films coming out, a new Fairy in a Glow Jar, and new interactive pets.

  1. Why do you think it’s better to shop for toys in store than online?

We believe shopping in store provides a fun time out for kids of all ages. They can physically set and touch the products, and find out more about the products from our staff.

  1. What key benefits does Croydon town centre have for families?

Croydon offers a wide range of shops for all ages, along with a good range of eateries. With a growing population, there is lots to come and visit, and we try to make Toy Barnhaus one of the best places to visit.

  1. What does Toy Barnhaus do differently to win such a fantastic award?

We believe that we offer a wide range of products, well laid out in store. We have built up good relationships with our suppliers and are able to offer some great deals to our customers. We offer a price match and will match any other high street store’s prices. Our staff are well trained, and all focused on helping our customers find what they need.


We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Peter Cox, store manager of Toy Barnhaus Croydon, as well as the staff and the wider Toy Barnhaus family.
