Collectable bicycle models are some of the highlights at this week's Toy Fair

New bike range, made from diecast metal, retailing at £5.99

We’ve had 29ers, 650B and now there’s a 15cm line from Pocketbond. Admittedly Pocketbond is a manufacturer of diecast models, so that’s not another standard to squeeze into the stockroom.

Pocketbond is showcasing its 15cm Toyway diecast bicycle assortment, featuring BMX and mountain bike models, at Olympia-set Toy Fair, running January 22nd to 24th this week. Counter display units fit 24 bicycles (six types available) and the bikes retail at £5.99 each.

Other paraphenalia that might be of interest at Toy Fair, this year in its 60th year, include D’Arpeje’s newly developed Little Tikes scooter range, built from wood, steel or aluminium. Creation’ Razor Pro Scooter will featuretoo, including accessories like wheels, clamps, grips and deck tape in an array of colours, developed to fit onto any brand of freestyle scooter. Likewise, Scoobits has scooter personalisation options.

Finally, Trikon offers a range of balance bike and trike options for pre-schoolers. There’s more on the show at our sister title’s news page here.
