The February 2020 issue of TnP is now available to read online.
TnP digs into toy fair season so far this month, with reviews of London Toy Fair and Spielwarenmesse – as well as some trend-spotting tips for the forthcoming Toy Fair New York, courtesy of the US Toy Association’s Trend Expert Kristin Morency Goldman. Wilton Bradley takes the cover story, putting its new range of electric wheeled toys from Xootz under the microscope. Meanwhile, the TnP Ambassadors try out two of the coolest products in the interactive and tech toy market: Bandai Namco Entertainment’s tori Explorer Pack and Tobar’s Zuru Robo Alive Fire Breathing Dragon.
On the retail front, TnP speaks with Stephen Barnes, co-founder of Toy Barnhaus, about how the retailer keeps ending up in the shortlist for toy retailer of the year (and sometimes winning too). In the news, TnP considers the far-reaching impact of the coronavirus on the toy industry, plus there’s also the usual mix of news, expert views and insight.
