Sheffield Antiques Quarter & Toy Like Me

In yesterday’s Business Live radio programme my guests were Hendrika Stephens of the Sheffield Antiques Quarter and Karen Newell of Toy Like Me.

Toy Like Me is an initiative seeking better representation of disability in children’s toys. It’s now working with independent makers and with global giant Playmobil and this week hit a fundraising target in a crowdfunding campaign.

Sheffield Antiques Quarter supports a growing number of independent retailers in Sheffield and is a community and retailer-led initiative. Have a listen to the podcast here.
