The June 2019 issue of TnP is available to read now.

Mattel brings Hot Wheels to June cover of TnP, sharing more about the company’s plans for the brand and an exciting collaboration with YouTube sensations The F2.

There’s also a spotlight on some of the best pocket money toys on the market this year, and the category of bikes and trikes also gets a thorough inspection as the summer holidays wheel onto the horizon. The TnP Ambassadors get stuck into STEM/STEAM and share their thoughts on Learning Resources Artie 3000, Zimpli Kids’ Gelli Worlds and a couple of Meccano sets from Spin Master.

And of course, there’s plenty more to pour over, including a retail interview with the Science Museum and an update from The Entertainer following the company’s acquisition of the ELC brand. You can also enjoy the usual mix of news, expert views and insight.
