The September issue of ToyNews is now available to read online, and on your iPad, here.
This month, we explore the booming games and puzzles sector, take a look at the rise in the UK’s board gaming culture and the growing popularity of board game clubs and cafes.
ToyNews’ Woman of the Year, Gerbie Quilter takes time from her busy schedule to talk about her career highlights and offer advice to those just starting out in the industry, before we give an in-depth look at the first ToyNews' Women of the Year event.
Elsewhere, The Entertainer’s Stuart Grant offers his view on the hottest trends for the fourth quarter and the ToyNews Retail Advisory Board discuss the forthcoming success of the wearable tech sector this Christmas.
We shine a spotlight on Norfolk’s biggest independent toyshop, the aptly named Big Shop as well as offer you a run through of what to expect at our first ever Toy and Game Inventors Workshop, kicking off this September 22nd.
In addition, we offer a run down of the latest products in our games and puzzles sector guide and round up the pocket money toys set to storm the playgrounds this year.
Of course, we wouldn’t be complete without our host of regular exclusives from NPD, Dubit, Generation Media, ToyShop UK, Jon Salisbury, Steve Rece and David Smith.
