The star of Toy Fair was Britain’s Got Talent 2015 winner Jamie Raven, who appeared at the show to launch a set of magic sets.

Magician Jamie, 32, stunned viewers of the ITV talent show and has had over 300 million hits on YouTube.

The four sets – Card Magic, Magic of the Mind, Street Magic and Sleight of Hand – hit shelves in February at £9.95 each.

Jamie said: “Magic has been part of my life for over 23 years and there is nothing better than performing for an audience.

“In the last 12 months I have delivered over 100 live performances.

“Experiencing magic performed in front of your very eyes is a completely different experience to watching a filmed clip of it, so I am very excited to be launching these new Magic Sets that not only provide tools of the magic trade, but most importantly the performance tricks too.

“We have created the sets to empower budding magicians to fulfil their true potential and ultimately the confidence to deliver amazing live performances.”

Around 7,500 visitors are thought to attend Toy Fair, which played host to over 250 exhibitors across 22,000 square metres of Kensington’s Olympia Exhibition Centre.
