So yeah, I’m bummed I am not at Toy Fair right now, but don’t worry, I am still getting all the hottest news! Joann from The Queen’s Treasures emailed me this evening with this awesome announcement – and gave me permission to share it with you tonight – before all the other news outlets have permission to share it. Yes, you are hearing it first.

Effective this weekend, The Queen’s Treasures and Laurent Doll will merge. According to the press release, each company brings different strengths to the partnership – Laurent Doll is stronger in technology, particularly backend, and The Queen’s Treasures is stronger in designing and marketing. Both companies have won numerous toy industry awards, which demonstrates that both are recognized for their quality design and workmanship.

I think this will be a very interesting partnership and wish both companies continued success! And of course, I can’t wait to see what new items each one plans to debut this weekend. Stay tuned for more Toy Fair 2015 news!!
