We kick off 2018 with a bang with our signature, bumper trade show season January issue. There’s in-depth previews of London Toy Fair and Nuremberg Toy Fair so you can plan your trips and get a head start on the competition. Learn who’s exhibiting, where to find them, and get a sneak peek at the brand new ranges top suppliers will be bringing to market for 2018.

MV Sports takes our cover story with a look at the company’s latest licensed and own band ranges - and why they’re so resilient regardless of trading conditions - and Toy State gives us a look at its latest launches and what to look out for throughout the year. Plus we dive into the hottest character licenses for 2018, the latest ride-ons, and much more. All that and our usual mix of expert insight, news, consumer reviews and the latest in retail.

As a bonus this year, we’ve expanded our Spring Fair preview into its very own supplement to bring you up to speed on some of the top exhibitors in Hall 5 and beyond. We also find out about exhibitor Juratoys’ latest releases and winning design philosophy, and learn why Robert Dyas COO Rachel Brain wouldn’t miss the show.
