With the whopping January 2021 issue of Toy World now at the printer, and the final newsflash of the year sent out, all that remains is to wish all our readers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

The Toy World team is incredibly grateful for the support and positive feedback from its readers this year; you really have been there for us as much as we have endeavoured to be there for you. Thank you.

We’re now taking a well earned break for Christmas and the New Year, and will be back in the office (barring lockdown news) from 4th January.

We’ll be jumping straight into work on our February issue. This issue will include a category feature on sustainable/eco-friendly toys, shining a light on the latest product launches that reflect the sustainability ethos. Plus, with the 2021 Spring Fair show cancelled due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions, this issue will also highlight those companies that would have exhibited if the show could go ahead as normal. If you want to be involved, drop us a line – for advertising enquiries, contact Mark Austin by phoning 07710 532952 or emailing For editorial enquiries, contact Rachael Simpson-Jones
