Wise Owl Toys outsells Hamleys, Harrods and WH Smith, scooping huge prize

Dobble-Tastic! “Remarkable” Sales earn Worcester Toy Shop Big Pay Day!
At the recent London Toy Fair, Worcester’s Wise Owl Toys were presented with a giant cheque of £1,011 for their success with retailer promotion, the “Dobble Challenge”.  The “Challenge” encourages retailers to demonstrate the card game, Dobble, in their store, earning a £1 bonus for every unit sold over a one year period. Wise Owl Toys were the most successful retailer in the country to take part in the Dobble Challenge, managing to sell over a staggering 1000 copies.  The final figure of 1011 games was more than were sold at Hamleys, Harrods or even WH Smith over the same time period.
Wise Owl Toys owner, Mark Stewart, is absolutely delighted to receive the windfall and has now turned his attention to next year’s “Challenge”.  “We love the game, so demonstrating it in our store was something that came naturally to us. It’s brilliant to be rewarded by the supplier for this. We now aim to sell even more in next year’s Challenge!”  The cheque was presented by Dobble supplier, Esdevium Games, whose Marketing Manager Ben Hogg commented “For one store to sell so many copies of Dobble is absolutely remarkable. It’s a fantastic game and lends itself perfectly to be shown to people, but we never expected one store to do so well.  It’s an incredible achievement.”
