This month's magazine includes the first of a new regular feature with the users of Mumsnet. This month we asked them how much they were planning to spend on their kids this Christmas.

Also in the latest issue is a review of 2011, with reminders of all the big news to hit the toy industry over the last year; a look back at 20 years of Vivid Imaginations; an interview with Golden Bear's Barry Hughes, who tells us about big plans for the company in 2012.

The retail section takes a look at the new Argos TV channel and in a new feature, our mystery shopper hit the east end of London this month.

Of course, all our regulars are in there too - Inside trader, Steve Reece, looks at the Future of Toys; Toy industry survivor, Jon Salisbury looks at the ever changing world of technology and there are all your favourites - campaign of the month, hero product, toy talk, talking shop and more.
