Toy retailer Smyths Toys Superstores has appointed McCann Manchester to head up its creative business, previously handled by TBWA/Manchester, following a competitive pitch.

Effective immediately, McCann Manchester will work across the retailer’s 88 stores in the UK and Ireland.

Martina Moran, senior marketing executive at Smyths said: “The McCann team demonstrated they understood us as a team, understood us as a business and that they understood our consumers. Importantly they showed how they could translate those insights into a creative campaign with real cut through.”

The account is estimated to be worth £6m.
