Media Opportunities: Submit Your Top Toys for Summer Play

May 18, 2017 | From outdoor water toys and ride-ons to artistic toys for rainy days, The Toy Association is seeking a variety of skill-building playthings for upcoming broadcast and editorial opportunities.

“Many parents will soon be looking for ways to exercise their kids’ bodies and minds in between school sessions – and play is a great way to keep kids engaged,” says Adrienne Appell, trend expert at The Toy Association. “We are looking forward to sharing some of our industry’s best products for summer ’17 with viewers across the nation!”

In May, Toy Association trend expert Isabel Carrion-Lopez appeared on KTVX-ABC in Salt Lake City and KING-NBC in Seattle to promote toys for outdoor play – including gardening kits, bubble blowers, scooters, sports toys, and more. Additional segments are being worked on.

Both outdoor and indoor toy and game suggestions may be sent to Adrienne Appell. All products must be available at retail and new for summer 2017. If selected, shipping instructions will be provided. Preference for all media opportunities is given to Toy Association members.
