Doha, The Gulf Observer: In conjunction with the launch of the ‘Your Summer Starts Here’ campaign, Visit Qatar is thrilled to announce the return of the ‘Qatar Toy Festival’ starting mid-July. This event, the largest of its kind, promises to be a highlight of Qatar’s exciting summer calendar.

Set to commence on July 15 and run through August 14 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC), the festival returns bigger and better than its predecessor, offering families an array of new live shows and exclusive activations. The Qatar Toy Festival invites families to enjoy live mascots, toys, performances, and play areas featuring their children’s favorite brands and characters.

This year, it expands with 10 Zones, spanning over 17,000 sqm, including three new additions: Preschool, Girls, and Boys. Other Zones include Anime, Family, Movie Land, Stage, F&B, Theming Area, and Retail. Over 50 international brands will participate, featuring fan-favorites such as Barbie, Marvel, LOL, Angry Birds, and Naruto. New to this year’s lineup are Mr. Bean and Barney, who will be featured in live shows alongside 76 mascots.

The festival will feature parades and over 19 stage shows, including musical performances, science shows, dance shows, and competitions. Influencer performances will include Rasha Rizg, the Adnaan family, the Tarfaan family, Fawzi Muzi, Blippi, Masaka Kidz, and more. Additionally, the festival will host five retail stores and over 200 influencers.
