Missing Toy Fair? Toy World’s January issue has the industry covered

Published on: 19th January 2021

The bumper January 2021 issue of Toy World contains a whopping 308-pages of industry-leading content, including a comprehensive Show Off section, and is not to be missed.

If this had been a normal year, the UK toy community would have been heading down to Olympia this week – indeed, Toy Fair was due to open its doors today. Sadly this is not possible, but we’re all looking forward to returning to Olympia next year. In the meantime, if you want to see all the latest hot toys that will be hitting the market this year, you can read our bumper January issue – over 300 pages packed with a host of fantastic toy launches from established and brand new suppliers.

Toy World publisher John Baulch commented: “As the only toy magazine to have published a January issue so far, we’re delighted to continue to support the toy community by showcasing a host of exciting new introductions for 2021. We’ve had fantastic feedback from readers to this bumper issue, so in a week when you would have been checking out new launches from existing suppliers and searching for new suppliers and ranges to freshen up your selections, I hope our January issue will offer retailers plenty of ideas and inspiration. Enjoy!”

Although subscribers will have received the biggest-ever January issue some time ago, readers who may have missed it can access the online issue below.

Our enormous Show Off feature is the go-to resource for retailers looking to find the latest and best toys on the market. In the absence of the London Toy Fair, we’ve helped companies highlight the ranges that would have been on show, helping buyers decide what they should be ordering this year. Our Virtual Showroom guide and Touching Base feature both demonstrate the innovative can-do spirit of the toy industry as companies work hard to bridge the gap between them and their customers this buying season.

We hope you enjoy reading the bumper January issue of Toy World as much as we enjoyed putting it together. It also won’t be long now until our February issue, which will include a focused look at eco-friendly and sustainable toys, along with all the usual news and features.
