Only a Few Spots Remain For Product Preview Appointments at Fall Toy Preview

September 17, 2018 | The Toy Association’s trends team will be on site at Fall Toy Preview scouting new playthings to determine the hot toy trends for 2019. Exhibiting companies are encouraged to book appointments with the trends team by Friday, September 21; only a few spots remain.

The trends team will meet with hundreds of toy companies and review thousands of products in order to establish the major trends and the latest developments in toys, play, and youth entertainment for next year. These trends will be unveiled in February to media, buyers, and other industry professionals attending the 116th North American International Toy Fair in New York City.

Once established, the Association will incorporate the trends and related products into media messaging throughout the year, including TV segments and trade and consumer articles.

Fall Toy Preview exhibitors interested in booking a 15-minute appointment with a member of the trends team should contact Angela Stanton-Weekes as soon as possible. Members of the team still have some availability to meet with companies Monday through Thursday, October 1 to 4, but spots are filling up fast. All product information gathered at the show is kept under embargo until Toy Fair.

Fall Toy Preview, taking place October 2 to 4 at the Dallas Market Center in Dallas, TX, is produced by The Toy Association. More information can be found at
