Fall Toy Preview

Fall Toy Preview® remained a critical stop on the long-lead buying circuit in 2017. Innovative toy lines, creative takes on classics, and unique trends for next year’s fourth quarter were unveiled by 323 exhibiting companies. Well over 600 buyers attended the Holiday 2018 preview which drew nearly 3,000 industry professionals from 20 countries.

Fall Toy Preview is The Toy Association's marketplace where savvy decision-makers from mass, long-lead, and specialty retailers come to preview product for next year's all-important holiday season. In just 3 days under 1 roof, all buyers interested in previewing playthings of all kinds can shop hundreds of brands with one or more lines to reveal for Q4 2019 delivery.

Retailers and sales representatives are eligible for free admission. Certain categories of trade guests and non-exhibitors are eligible for admission for a fee. Each registrant must present both business credentials and employee identification.
