IN OUR TALK SECTIONS: we quiz suppliers on their preparations for Christmas trading and ask independent retailers what’s selling well for them for this summer.

PLUS: our regular columnists from the BTHA, the US Toy Association, Generation Media and The Insights Family share their insights, while retail expert John Ryan gives his views on why he believes this is the dawning of a new era for indies – and fledging indie Hazel McCarthy, owner of Toy Corner in Galway, gives us a sneak peak at her ‘Diary of a Toy Shop’.
