November 6, 2017 | Registration is open to secure a spot at Fall Toy Preview 2018, taking place October 2 to 4, 2018 in Dallas, TX. Returning exhibitors that participated in this year’s show have until December 31 to submit their application to be included in the first round of space assignments.
This year’s show featured thousands of innovative new playthings available for winter, spring, and holiday 2018 from more than 300 registered exhibitors. Hundreds of global buyers from both mass and high-volume specialty retail outlets were on-site to scout the latest trends in toys and play, including Toys“R”Us, Walmart, Target, Marshalls/TJ Maxx, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Michaels Stores, JC Penney, Party City, and Hobby Lobby.
This year, Walmart sent a large delegation of buyers to Fall Toy Preview to scope out product for its online and brick-and-mortar stores. “Fall Toy Preview has become very valuable to us,” says Anne Marie Kehoe, vice president of toys at Walmart. “We find it really helps us get a broad perspective in the fall season of what’s available in the marketplace.”
Exciting details about next year’s show will be shared in the coming months. To see highlights from this year’s Fall Toy Preview, visit The Toy Association’s YouTube page.
