We would like to thank all our clients for supporting us during the past 28 years during which we published 28 editions of the International Directories of Retail Toy Buyers and 23 editions of the International Directory of Toy Importer-Distributors providing valuable information for manufacturers looking to increase their export sales
Updating information for 49 countries in 31 different languages requires a lot of work and unfortunately we no longer generate enough profit to cover our costs. Therefore we regrettably had to take the decision to stop publishing these directories and there will be no future editions.
If you have not already bought the 2021 editions you can now get them at a 50% discounted price.
The directories are available to either download either as a PDF book or in a package with an Access database and an Excel spreadsheet to enable you to print address labels, run email campaigns and mail merges. You can also analyse and select data to enable you to use the data more effectively and completely.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION to our clients
In order to comply with the newly introduced EU General Data Protection Regulation we had to reformat the information provided in our directories:
The International Directory of Toy Importer-Distributors remains unchanged. All importer-distributors listed in the countries of the European Union have given consent to their details being listed in this directory.
For the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers it was not possible to get consent from the buyers within the EU to list their details. Therefore the directory lists a generic email address (where possible) for the purchasing department, but no buyer names and only occasional buyer email addresses, if consent was given. In the countries not affected by GDPR legislation we continue to list names of buyers by category and email addresses of buyers.
In order to compensate for the less detailed information provided, we have included the US Directory of Mass Market Toy Buyers in the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers. This means there is no longer a separate directory for the US Mass Market Toy buyers, but when you purchase the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers you will also receive full contact details of toy buyers in over 110 retail chains in the US covering mass merchandisers, supermarkets, sporting goods, craft, book and many other channels which carry toys.
