Be part of the September issue of Toy World

Published on: 20th July 2020

Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming September issue including how you can get involved. 

September issue Toy World

The upcoming September issue of Toy World will include category features on Playground Crazes & Pocket Money Collectibles, Pre-Christmas TV advertising and a dedicated, stand-alone Games/Puzzles Supplement. Plus, following part one of our special ‘Show Off’ feature in the August issue of Toy World, part two will be running in the September issue, highlighting new ranges that companies were due to exhibit at Toymaster this year.

The ‘Show Off Indie Special’ will be mailed out to all the independent buyers who would have visited the show (as well as all the other toy buyers who don’t traditionally visit the Toymaster show), making it the perfect opportunity to put your product in front of every independent toy retail buyer as we approach the all-important autumn winter period. After a challenging few months, independent toy retailers will need a strong festive sales season to help them bounce back, and ensuring they get their product mix right will be pivotal to their success in Q4. With face to face meetings off the menu and shows cancelled, this feature will help them to decide which new ranges to get behind in the run-up to Christmas.

This issue will also include regular features like Talking Shop, Viewpoint and Allegedly, as well as feature interviews and a selection of the latest news from the toy industry,

The editorial deadline will be 3rd August and the deadline for adverts will be 13th August. Companies wanting to get involved should contact the team ASAP.
