Deadlines for Toy World’s January issue are looming

Published on: 23rd November 2023

Don’t miss your chance to be involved in the bumper January issue of Toy World – work is well underway so don’t delay your editorial submissions or ad enquiries.

The January issue of Toy World is expected to arrive with readers by 8th January. This is the issue toy and games companies can’t afford to miss. With everything visitors and exhibitors need to know about London Toy Fair, what will be on display and where, we’ll also be chatting with the team from the BTHA about what’s been going on behind the scenes in preparation for the event’s 70th anniversary year.

Advertisers in this issue are guaranteed generous editorial coverage and the chance to get involved in additional content opportunities. As the UK’s leading toy trade magazine, with 90% market share and growing, this means your company will be able to place its brands in front of all the major buyers and decision makers that turn to Toy World at the start of each and every month for the latest industry news and product information. Regular online coverage in the run-up to the event, and during the show itself, will help bolster advertising initiatives further.

We’ll also be presenting Part 2 of our Spielwarenmesse 2024 preview, ahead of the upcoming Nuremberg Toy Fair. This year, for the first time ever, this will be a special pull-out supplement and will be mailed along with the January issue of Toy World.

A digital version of the main issue and the supplement will be put online on the same day the print issue arrives on desks, featured on the website, across all our social media platforms and also as a story on the daily newsflash, bringing it to the attention of thousands of buyers from across the globe, not just the UK.

Our early publication date means that visitors to the London Toy Fair and the Spielwarenmesse will have plenty of time to use the supplement to prepare themselves for their visits to the shows.

On top of all that, we’ll have the usual exclusive articles and interviews to get stuck into, plus all the most relevant toy trade going-ons, news, views and opinion.

A reminder that the editorial deadline for this issue is December 1st while the deadline for advertising artwork is December 12th.

If you would like any further information or details of what we can offer for you to have a presence in these important preview issues, get in touch with the Toy World team, who will be happy to outline the available options.

Last minute advertising enquiries should be directed to Mark Austin by phoning 01442 502405 or emailing, or John Baulch on 01442 502408  or – but don’t delay as space is running out.
