Come on in…
If you are a toy retailer and not already a member, explore this section to discover the benefits of membership of the Toy Retailers Association, established in 1950 to act as both a watchdog and persuader to ensure fair play for toy retailers.
Toy Retailers Association and Membership
Representing the majority of the toy trade, the Association’s role is to inform and advise members on current and future legislation, as well as ethical practices in respect of toy safety, requirements under the Health and Safety Executive, consumer and employment rights.
Members include Argos/Sainsbury’s, Smyths, Toy Town, The Entertainer and many independent shops including members of the Toymaster and AIS/plaY-room buying groups.
The TRA is a company limited by guarantee and controlled by its members who elect leaders from among themselves each year. All the directors are volunteers and actively involved in the retailing of toys.
