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

The issue features ToyNews' ultimate top toys list, where we have combined every list released this year to find the most voted for products this Christmas, complete with a look at 2013's biggest news in our review of the year.

Also, our special focus on summer movies takes a look at the upcoming blockbusters, the accompanying toy lines and whether retail looks like benefitting.

We also hear New Year's resolutions from across the industry and John Crane tells ToyNews why 2013 has been a year to remember.

In addition, we shine a spotlight on Mega Bloks Halo in our Anatomy of a Blockbuster section and take a comprehensive look at pocket money toys and industry services 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.
