The issue features the first ever Women In Toys power list. This dedicated nine-page feature, created in association with the Women in Toys organisation, reveals the top 100 women in toys as nominated by their collegues in the industry.

Elsewhere, we get the industry's view on toy fair season, ToyShopUK asks its listers what the toy fairs mean to them and we report from the US Toy Fair where Alicia Keys, Grumpy Cat and Spider-Man himself were in attendance.

This month also sees our Mystery Shopper head to London on the hunt for a traditional toy and Underground Toys tells ToyNews about Funko, wooing independent retail and further expansion

In addition, we shine a spotlight on Tamagotchi in our Anatomy of a Blockbuster Toy feature and take a comprehensive look at outdoor toys, app toys and stickers & trading cards in this month's sector guides.

All this, as well as exclusive regulars from NPD, Dubit, Generation Media, ToyShopUK, Jon Salisbury, Steve Reece and David Smith.
