Our 1000th Blog Post


Today is a special day for Global Toy News as this is our 1000th blog post.  That's about a half a  million words or almost the same length as War and Peace

Next month will mark three full years of providing commentary on the toy industry.  In that time we have tried to shed light equally on our industry's successes and foibles; our major and minor players; our global associates and everyone else who makes up this fascinating and sometimes bewildering industry.  And by the way, if you are doing research, use our search function.  Between all of  our postings, if you need information on it; we probably wrote about it.

I want to thank all of our wonderful writers who share their opinions and insights so adeptly.  I want to thank Miguel Ortuno of Blue Bot Advertising who does such a great job of designing and reinventing our website. A very big thanks is due our advertisers who making it possible for us to provide our magazine to the industry at no charge.  So, please pay attention to those ads.

Of course, we don't just write for ourselves.  We write for all of you who read and subscribe.  There would be no Global Toy News without you.

So, thank you one and all.  And now, on to number 2,000.
