The April issue of ToyNews is now available to read online, and on your iPad, here.
The issue introduces readers to the first in a series of features on toy inventors and the trials, tribulations and successes of getting your design from paper to prototype, to retail.
Meanwhile, Cartamundi talks 2014 and what the toy firm is getting excited about this year, while 20th Century Fox discusses The Simpsons 25th Anniversary, and why retailers will be celebrating with them this year.
This month also sees our Mystery Shopper take to Oxfordshire in search for an exploration toy and we offer a comprehensive look at the latest products in pre-school, games and puzzles and RC products.
In addition, we shine a spotlight on Rubie’s collection of Batman lines in our regular Anatomy of a Blockbuster Toy feature as well as offer you a host of regular exclusives from NPD, Dubit, Generation Media, Toyshop UK, Jon Salisbury, Steve Reece and David Smith.
