Toy City reveals 2018 Top Toy List as 50 pop-ups open in the US for Christmas

With over 50 temporary Toy City pop-up store locations now open throughout the US, Party City has revealed its own 2018 Top Toys List. 

The curated list has landed as the retailer looks to take a slice of the toy market this Christmas, following the collapse of the US toy giant, Toys R Us.

"The creation of our Toy City concept allows us to provide shoppers with an enhanced assortment of top toy brands and characters they’re looking for in another convenient format and engaging setting,” said Jamie Uitdenhowen, chief merchandising officer of Party City. 

"In addition to the top toys of the season, we will be offering Holiday décor items and a great selection of Holiday sweaters and pajamas for the whole family. We look forward to continuing to serve our customers through this new pilot program and helping to make everyone’s holiday a bit brighter, while raising money for our partners at St. Jude.”
