The May issue of ToyNews is now available to read online and on your iPad, here.

This month, we've trawled the UK and Ireland to find out which cities are brimming with physical independent toy stores and which areas are in desperate need of High Street specialists. Our findings are revealed on a map on page 31, so do check and see if you're living in a toy indie hotspot.

Elsewhere, this issue sees the unveiling of ToyNews Women of the Year 2015, so click on the link above and find out who has made this year's top 100 listing.

Meanwhile, we take a look at how bricks and mortar independents can embrace the world of digital without losing their identities and lift the lid on what suppliers will be showcasing at this year's Toymaster show.

Also included in this issue is the latest in our new ToyShop UK Debates series. This month, ToyShop UK asks its listers for their views on the prickly issue of whether suppliers should have the freedom to sell direct to consumers.

Of course, no ToyNews is complete without its extensive sector guides, and this month we focus on the dolls and boys sectors.

And rounding us off for another month are our regular contributions from NPD, Dubit, Generation Media, The Good Toy Guide and Steve Reece.
