I have over 30 years experience of working in the toy trade press, dating back to 1980, when I first joined Toy Trader magazine. In January 1983 I was head-hunted by the owner of Toys n Playthings, where I stayed until June 2011 (28 years – you get less time for murder!). Although I have launched numerous publications in other industries over the years, I have always enjoyed working with the toy and licensing trades more than any other I have been involved with. In 2011, I decided that the time was right to branch out and launch my own toy trade magazine: Toy World. I am looking forward to spending the rest of my career in the toy industry, and making Toy World indispensable reading for anyone connected with the toy trade.
