We’re just putting the finishing touches to our July issue and starting to pull together the upcoming August issue. This edition will contain dedicated features on the STEM, Plush and Wooden toy categories. In addition, there will be a section previewing the Autumn Fair, which is scheduled to take place at the NEC from 5th – 8th September, shining a light on up-and-coming products that will be on display at the show.

Suppliers of Fidget Toys and Sensory Toys are also encouraged to get in touch to discuss inclusion in something we’re working on for this edition.

As usual we will be talking to a selection of indie retailers for our regular Talking Shop section, and the issue will also contain all our regular features, together with in-depth interviews and a roundup of the latest news .

Companies wanting to get involved should contact the team ASAP. The editorial deadline is 1st July and the ad deadline is the 14th July.
