Cover from November 2013
Global Toy News has attracted over 750,000 page views since its inception in April of 2010. That is thanks to a group of insightful writers (Bruce Lund, Mary Couzin, Kim Vandebroucke and Chris Bensch have been with us since the beginning) and highly intelligent readers who together create a place where new and sometimes challenging ideas can be launched and debated. The toy industry, our readership base, is not a particularly large community yet we draw readers from all over the world. In fact, Google Analytics tells us that our readers come from 204 countries.
Global Toy News is not the place to visit if you want to know about the latest toy or fad. We are, however, a place you will want to visit if you like to challenge your way of thinking about play and the business of play. In our archives you can find articles that ponder the relationship between play and art, socio economics; geopolitics, technology, gender and so much more.
Here is a list of some of the most read and enduring postings since the beginning.
