The UK business of Galway-headquartered retailer Smyths Toys last year saw its pre-tax profits double to a record £18.11m (€20.77m) from £9.5m.

Revenues soared to a new record level thanks to bumper sales of bestsellers Lego, Barbie, Nerf Guns, Paw Patrol and My Little Pony toys.

Last year, revenues at the business increased by £167.9m, or 27pc, from £620m to £788m.

The business is operated by the Smyth family from Co Mayo and three members sit on the board, Anthony Smyth, Liam Smyth and Patrick Smyth.

Thomas Smyth resigned as a director on November 1st, 2021.

The directors state that they are pleased with the results, particularly given the current economic climate, the competitive market place and the outbreak of Covid-19.
