The August 2019 issue of TnP magazine is now available to read online here.

The August 2019 issue of TnP shines a spotlight on the ever-popular RC and app-controlled toy category, as well as of the best farm-themed toys and mythical creature-inspired playthings on the market. And with a bumper year for licensing, we take a look at TV and film character inspired toys. With Autumn Fair just around the corner, we also look ahead to the upcoming Autumn Fair.

This month’s cover story comes from Siso Toys UK, which discusses its investment in the Majorette die-cast car brand. While the tiny toy testers give their verdict on a selection of beautiful products from Juratoys.

Industry leaders discuss how they are tackling the issues of toy safety and counterfeiting. And this issue also hears from the central buyer at Birmingham Museums Trust, who shares how the company approaches range planning and merchandising for Thinktank.
All that, plus the usual mix of news, expert views and insight.
