The December issue of Toy World is out now

Published on: 29th November 2023

The latest issue of the UK’s leading toy trade magazine, Toy World, is now available to read online and is landing on desks and doormats this week. 

The December issue of Toy World is out now. The issue features an early preview from Nuremberg Toy Fair exhibitors on what products they’ll be showing to visitors and why retailers and distributors should visit their stands.

In an exclusive interview, Toy World visited Curious Universe’s offices in Bath to hear about 2024 plans for Crystalverse, an up and coming universe: Cutesville and more.

Toy World also spoke to Rubies about its latest licenced signings, to Deddy Bears (Innov8) on how the company has disrupted the plush category, to Skillmatics on the brand’s continued growth, to Libertas Brands on its plans to expand its Fuggler IP, and we report from a special Star Wars: Unlimited TCG launch event by Asmodee, where Team Toy World tried out the game for ourselves.

On top of all this, the December issue of Toy World features all the latest news, plus views and useful info from Circana, Generation Media and Toy Barnhaus. There’s a look at some Fresh new ranges, and a catch up with indie retailers in this month’s Talking Shop. Finally, we have special features with Precise TV and Mattel president and chief Commercial officer, Steve Totzke.
