Media Release 1 September 2014

Top Toys for the Silly Season

New Zealand’s oldest puzzle makers and seasoned toy experts, Thos Holdsworth & Sons have announced their Top Ten Toy picks for Christmas 2014.

Celebrating their 75th year in business, Thos Holdsworth & Sons has tried and tested toys from around the world to ensure they are bringing the very best to families during the festive season.

Whether it’s keeping the kids quiet during long road trips, entertaining a group of friends with a board game or simply finding a quiet moment to tackle a puzzle at the batch, Holdson has Christmas covered.

For the boys, be inspired by the Playmobil Large Construction Crane – great for the next budding engineer! For those who like to build and play, Andrea Auld Brand Co-ordinator for Holdson recommends Tronico. This range is ideal for inventive constructors who like a challenge!

Creativity and nostalgia seem to be capturing the hearts and minds of Kiwi girls this year. Sylvanian Families, Sprayza Fashion, 4M craft kits and Disney’s Frozen puzzles and games are proving popular according to Holdson.

“Sylvanian Families has always been a top seller at Christmas, and this year is no exception with the new release of the Berry Grove School and accessories, a must have for any Sylvanian Collector.”

“Our top ten picks are what we think will provide fun and entertainment for the entire family,” says Andrea.

The magic of Christmas doesn’t stop with the kids. Holdson’s top ten toy list also features a range of 1000pc puzzles and family games which promise to provide hours of fun and entertainment for the big kids in the family.

“Being our 75th year in the puzzle making business, we know that this pastime provides hours of entertainment and relaxation away from screens and technology, which we believe is the reason they are still so popular,” says Andrea.

As an added Christmas bonus, puzzle lovers who buy any three specially marked 75th Anniversary 1000pc puzzles will be able to send away for one of four free limited edition 1000pc puzzles from Holdson. Offer available until 31st January 2015.
