The July edition of Toy World contains all the latest news and product information, as well as a host of exclusive features and interviews.

We’re delighted to bring you another packed issue of Toy World, which includes in-depth features on the Construction, Tech Toys, Dress Up & Role Play and Stationery categories, as well as a wealth of fantastic new product to help retailers freshen up their ranges in our Fresh pages.

John and Rachael visit Schleich’s new UK head office as the company unveils a major new global brand strategy, and we hear from Learning Express’ Mike Derse, an American visitor to this year’s Toymaster May Show, to get his impressions of the event.

Meanwhile, Sam catches up with Philip Kaye at Kayes of Cardiff to find out how smaller toy shops can benefit from the company’s big brand partnerships, and there’s a fascinating interview with Casdon and Antony and Richard Joseph (of Joseph Joseph fame), plus much more.

The July issue also includes regular features such as Talking Shop, NPD Insight and Allegedly, plus a carefully curated selection of the latest news from the toy industry.
