Can you feel the Force?

ToyNews is putting together a special feature next month to mark the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars film franchise, highlighting the best of the toy products available across a variety of sectors.
Publish date:

The feature will cover Star Wars figures, gifts and collectables, dress-up, plug 'n' play and console games and, following the success of its recent Harry Potter supplement, is a continuation of the magazine’s increased commitment to coverage as the UK’s only dedicated monthly licensing section.

Editor, Ronnie Dungan, commented: “Star Wars is, without doubt, the most powerful franchise in the market and when it sells, we all do well. So it made perfect sense to help retailers and suppliers optimise the opportunity that this anniversary presents by highlighting exactly what is available.

“It is also part of an increased commitment to our coverage of the UK licensing market for which we now offer the leading monthly coverage and you can be sure that there will be more to come from us in this area.”

To advertise in the Star Wars supplement contact Laura Crowhurst at or on 01992 535647. Copy deadline: April 13th

For editorial contact Samantha Loveday at or on 01992 535646. Deadline: April 3rd.

Other features in the May issue will include Pre-school, Action Vehicles and Large Dolls.
