Read the bumper Jan/Feb 2017 issue of ToyNews online now

The bumper January/February issue of ToyNews is now available to read online and on your iPad, here.

Yes, it is that time of year again, when the industry descends upon London Olympia before jetting off to Nuremberg to indulge in all of the frivolities that are part and parcel of the annual Toy Fair season.

And to celebrate, we have once again brought to you our bumper Toy Fair special featuring the latest news, the biggest features and a raft of exclusive interviews and trade leading content.

And what better way to celebrate this vibrant and innovative industry than championing the names that have helped shape it throughout its history?

After our dose of nostalgia, we take a look at what the year ahead has in store for us, as we talk to key executives from the industry in our View From the Top, as well as talking exclusively to a maverick of today’s tabletop gaming scene, Elan Lee.

Hasbro, Mattel, Flair, Gibsons and many other big names in the world of toys talk us through the plans for the future, while we take a look at what a world under Donald Trump’s presidency could mean for the toy industry.

The Licensing Hot List returns for 2017, as well as the Toy News exclusive retail survey, in which we ask the UK’s independent toy retail scene the questions that matter the most.

Generation Media is back with its exclusive pull-out this issue, with the latest stats on the children’s market all to help you stay ahead of the curve this year.

Of course, let’s not forget the main event that is Toy Fair season and the Toy Fair, Nuremberg and Spring Fair sectors, highlighting some of the biggest and best products that will be gracing the aisles at this year’s shows.

As always, no issue of ToyNews would be complete without its line up of exclusive regulars, and this month, we offer you them by the bucket load with opinions, Generation Media and plenty more.
