Last call for the May issue of Toy World

Published on: 29th March 2023

Here’s everything you need to know about the May issue of Toy World; there’s still time to get involved but deadlines are fast approaching.

Our next edition will include comprehensive category features on both the Dolls and Wheeled Toys (Ride on) categories.

The Toymaster May Show makes its annual appearance from 16th-18th May, and there will be an extensive Toymaster feature in this issue, which will give suppliers the chance to showcase their new introductions to every single Toymaster member and toy indie, to help them decide which lines to support and invest in for the remainder of 2023. The three-day event attracts independent retailers from across the country, regardless of whether or not they are members of the Toymaster buying group, and is a highlight of the UK toy trade calendar, thanks to its laid back, yet professional, atmosphere and evening entertainment.

Of course, all our regular features such as Talking Shop, Letter from America, Allegedly and all the latest industry news, will also feature.

The deadline for editorial in the May issue will be the 3rd April, and the deadline for adverts will be the 14th April.

For further information regarding editorial opportunities in the May issue of Toy World, contact Rachael Simpson-Jones, editor, or Samantha Giltrow, assistant editor, on
