Last call for the August issue of Toy World

Published on: 6th July 2023

There’s just time to be included in the upcoming August issue of Toy World, and here are all the details you need to know.

The team is currently putting the finishing touches to the upcoming August issue and deadlines are fast approaching, so don’t delay if you have copy or images to submit. This edition will contain dedicated features on the STEM/educational, Plush and Wooden toy categories. In addition, there will be a section previewing the Autumn Fair, which will take place at the NEC from 3rd – 6th September, shining a light on up-and-coming products of interest to toy retailers that will be on display at the show.

As usual we will be talking to a selection of indie retailers for our regular Talking Shop section. 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 in any of the features – or who have news they wish to share – should contact the team ASAP. Please note that, although the editorial deadline is very tight, the ad deadline is the 14th July.

For advertising enquiries, contact John Baulch by emailing

For editorial enquiries, contact editor Rachael Simpson-Jones – or Marianna Casal –

The team is also always happy to talk to you about involvement in any of our future editions, get in touch to check opportunities and  upcoming deadlines.
