“The production team and the children are what make the Toy Show special and memorable and I want to thank everyone involved, from little star Michael to our heroes Grace and Scott, to the set and costume designers. I’m delighted viewers loved it as much as we did.”

This year’s show had some seriously emotional moments – including the final segment which saw cousins Scott and Grace, after viewers heard Scott had given his bone marrow to his little cousin to save her life.
