The September issue of TnP magazine is now available to read online HERE.

Coverage of an industry in flux continues this issue, with updates on the industry’s trade show calendar – including London and Nuremberg toy fairs, and the brand new Festival of Licensing – and how they’re planning for a safe slate of events.
Our cover star is Bandai, which takes us down the catwalk for a closer look at the au courant arts and crafts range, Harumika. Plus, the games and puzzles category gets a lockdown boost, and Q4 advertising campaigns get a head start to attract families spending more time at home in front of their favourite content.
Retailers tell us how adapting to this year’s trading challenges has opened new doors – and garden centre You Garden talks getting into toys for the first time to broaden its appeal.
All that, plus the latest industry news, views and expert insight.
