We’re on the hunt for a pair of best friends to join our team and become our official toy testers. Billed as the best job in the world for kids, we’re looking to recruit two children who are all-time besties. The hopeful friends should love playing with toys, adore role play and not be camera shy!

The chosen best friends will be given the role of a lifetime, with the opportunity to test our vast range of toys and be treated to unprecedented and exclusive access - ahead of anyone else - to the coolest new toys. If that wasn’t enough, they will also be invited to attend the ultimate party at Hamleys in London and receive £100 worth of toy shop vouchers.

Sound good so far? All you need to apply on behalf of your child and their best friend is to submit a picture CV and covering letter detailing why the pair are the ideal candidates for the job. Make sure you act quick as applications are only open until Friday 5th July, parents should email their child’s submission to tomy@lucre.co.uk.

Five children and their best friends will then be shortlisted and sent their ‘first assignment’ requiring parents to send a video of the children reviewing a TOMY product at home.

The dream job has been created to celebrate the launch of TOMY’s latest range, Ritzy Rollerz, which is a series of collectible, super adorable characters - specifically for children aged 4-7 years, who love rolling adventures.

Featuring 12 characters who are the best of friends including; Helena Heelz, Donut Dani, Frenchy Braid and Groovy Gaby. The characters can be collected and customised to fit an individual’s personality. The range also includes three playsets - Heelz on Wheelz Shoe Shop Playset with Helena Heelz, Sprinklez on Wheelz Donut Shop Playset with Donut Dani and Dance n Dazzle Spa Playset with Tori Tada – one of the popular alternative characters.

Please see below T&C’s for the competition.
