This issue also contains a special Show Off feature; with a number of key physical trade shows now cancelled for 2020, or pivoted to an online-only format, Toy World is committed to keeping the trade informed and connected over the coming months by furnishing readers with all the information they need on Q3/4 ranges, as well as the service providers working to bridge the gap between supply and retail while the shows are off.

In addition, the August issue contains company profiles with KAP Toys and Simba Smoby Toys UK, the former discussing the challenges of a mid-pandemic warehouse move, and the latter the intricacies of a mid-pandemic merger. Contributors including the NPD Group, Toy Barnhaus, Generation Media and Etopia Consultancy also offer their news and views.
