The November 2019 issue of TnP is now available to read online

This month’s issue of TnP shines a spotlight on new lines and ranges coming in the first quarter of 2020, along with the latest hits from the plush sector.

Vivid showcases Power Pux on the front cover, and in its cover story on page 20, delves into this new collectable range that brings action and gameplay to the table.

Ahead of the highly anticipated release of Frozen II, a special feature looks at some of the best licensed products that fans will be adding to their Christmas lists this year. And, as the nights draw in, and families look to toy shelves for some festive fun, The TnP Ambassadors turn their attention to some of the best new lines from Big Potato and Orchard Toys.

Brian Simpson, Head of Buying at Toytown, marks the retailer’s 40th anniversary in a special piece about the company his father founded in November 1979. And in other retail matters, the Buying Director of Gift Universe digs into the toys making a difference on his shelves.

Of course, there’s also the usual mix of news, expert views and insight.
