Last call for the July issue of Toy World

Published on: 1st June 2022

There’s still time to get involved – here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming July issue, plus the all-important deadlines.

With the June issue winging its way to readers this week, the team is now hard at work on the July edition of Toy World.

The July issue will include comprehensive category features on Dress-Up & Role-Play, Construction Toys, Stationery and Tech Toys. Regular articles such as Talking Shop and a column from a special guest contributor will bring you up to date with the independent retail sector, while the newest product introductions will be highlighted in the Fresh section. The edition will include all the latest industry, marketing and licensing news, as well as the most recent toy trade appointments and much more. We’re also bringing you a number of exclusive articles with leading toy suppliers.

The deadline for editorial has been extended to 6th June, and the deadline for adverts is 13th June, so there’s still time to get involved.

Companies who wish to do so are urged to get in touch with the team without delay. For editorial queries, email editor Rachael Simpson-Jones at or assistant editor Samantha Giltrow at and for advertising enquiries, contact sales director Mark Austin at
