Smyths Toys partners with Great Ormond Street Hospital


Smyths Toys have teamed up with Funko to create a Smyths Toys exclusive POP! Vinyl of their lovable brand character, Oscar – and all profits are going to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) to help support seriously ill children. Starting from 15 October, the Oscar POP! Vinyl will be available in all Smyths Toys Superstores across the UK, while stocks last, retailing at just £9.99.

Liz Tait, Director of Fundraising at GOSH Charity, said: “Now in the fourth year of our partnership, we are thrilled that Smyths Toys Superstores are supporting GOSH Charity once again with the launch of the Oscar POP! Vinyl. This is a brilliant opportunity for us to raise much-needed funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital, at a time when the hospital needs our support more than ever, so for that we’d like to say a huge thank you.”

Eva Verhaak, Head of Strategic Marketing and Sales – Funko EMEA said: “Smyths Toys Superstores’  initiative to support GOSH Charity is an amazing cause and we are absolutely delighted to be part of it, working with Smyths to create an exclusive collector’s item,  a POP! Vinyl figure of the well-known character, Oscar!”
