The Australian Toy Association held its annual Gala Dinner on the first night of the Fair and it was once again a fantastic night filled with great food, company and the amazingly talented Chunky Jam who kept us on the dancefloor all night.
Over the course of the night, the Australian Toy Association (ATA) proudly awarded individuals who are shaping the industry by inducting Manny Stul (Moose) into the ATA Hall of Fame and presenting Andrew Hendy (Headstart International) with the inaugural Rising Star Award.
Congratulations also goes to Madeleine Hunter and Yolanda Giannone who received a special mention for their contribution to the strength of our industry.

The Australian Toy Association would like to thank Hasbro for its sponsorship of the Gala Dinner, this amazing event could not have taken place without your support!
