This month, we sit down with the industry’s answer to marmite, MGA Entertainment’s CEO, Isaac Larian to talk the company’s successes over the last 12 months as well as the unstoppable rise of LOL Surprise.

November marks the outdoor toys special, so we take an in-depth look at the issues surrounding childhood obesity and how the toy industry can help curb the rising problem by encouraging kids to get active from an early age.

Collectables is the hot topic at the moment and with more and more arriving each month, we explore how some of these toy lines are starting to build franchises and expand into the licensing space.

With Toy Fair 2018 just around the corner, ToyNews catches up with the stars of ToyFair TV, Gavin Inskip and Anna Williamson to talk ToyFairs gone by, what excited the pair about the show and the trends they spot each year.

This month, we shine the spotlight on the outdoor toys, bike, scooters and ride-ons and pre-school toy sectors, so make sure to dig in to this month’s installment of ToyNews for all the latest trends and big issues.

Of course, no ToyNews would be complete without its host of regulars and this month is no exception. Click here to read opinion pieces from this our contributors, discover a world view of the Toys R Us financial struggle from Euromonitor, catch up with Generation Media, and a lot more.
