Last call for the June ‘Vegas’ issue of Toy World

Published on: 2nd May 2023

There’s still time to get involved in the upcoming June issue of Toy World but deadlines are fast approaching.

Work is well underway on our June Issue, which will include category features on Arts & Crafts (Creative Play), Infant Toys, and Action Figures & Collectibles. This issue will also have a licensing focus and feature an extended Licensing World section,  open to both licensors and licensees and containing Hot Properties and Character Licensed Merchandise. With Licensing Expo on the horizon, the June issue will give Vegas exhibitors the chance to shine a spotlight on their characters and brands, putting them in front of the decision-makers in the kids’ space.

Deadlines are tight this month and we appreciate the cooperation of those taking part to work with us to get what is sure to be an impressive issue over the line. The June edition will be published in good time before Licensing Expo; we feel strongly that, for a preview issue to be truly useful for visitors to the Las Vegas show, it should be available in the run up to the show to aid preparation.

The deadline for editorial in the June issue has been extended to the 5th May (but as soon as you can would be great!), and the deadline for adverts remains the 15th May. With several Bank Holidays in May this year, please ensure you plan for these deadlines in good time.

For further information regarding editorial opportunities contact Rachael Simpson-Jones, editor, or Marianna Casal, assistant editor,
