Interesting analysis Richard

I'm from Denmark and we may have many roller coasters here (being a game inventor I even invented a game called "Roll-a-Coaster"). But they can definitely NOT live up to the quality of the roller coasters I've tried in the US in California, Texas, Florida, and New Jersey.

But, considering the playful aspect, I guess we are pretty playful here. Traditional board games are very popular here and ranging from very simple games to heavier Euro-style games.

Thanks for your always interesting Toy News, Richard :-)

Interesting stat's, but I'd be wary of reading too much into them.

That said, there must be a description of a country's personality hidden within them and that may influence the types of toys (or perhaps the branding) that works best in local markets.

And that is an interesting subject now that the internet allows individuals to express themselves in a more personal way that may not run in line with global, mass marketing techniques.
