Get involved in the November issue of Toy World

Published on: 19th September 2023

With the huge October licensing special (and accompanying standalone Mattel supplement) now off to print, the Toy World team is cracking straight on with the November issue. 

Toy WorldNot known for resting on its laurels, the Toy World team is launching itself straight into the next issue of Toy World following the sending of the bumper October issue to print on Friday.

The November issue takes a look at what’s coming down the pipe, with a big feature on Q1 ranges helping readers get to grips with all the new toys and games slated for launch between Boxing Day and Easter next year. This is a crucial period for securing post-Christmas sales and reinvigorating the shelves following the festive season, so if you have a new range arriving between 26th December – 31st March, this is your chance to shout about it.

And with summer (can we even call it that?) giving way to autumn, we’ll nonetheless be focusing on the Outdoor Toys category with a major round-up of the products that’ll have kids wishing winter away.

Of course, we’ll also be running all our regular features, with insight from industry experts including Circana and Toy Barnhaus, the latest News and Industry Moves, a recap of what’s been going on in Licensing World and info on the major campaigns driving sales in Marketing World. We’re also on the lookout for more independent retailers keen to take part in our popular Talking Shop feature, and, as always, all readers are free to get in touch with ideas for Viewpoint pieces or anything else they’d like to share.

As the October issue went to print early this month (a big thank you to everyone who helped make that happen, by the way), there’s plenty of time to get involved with the November issue of Toy World.
