Covered in this report
This report defines toys and games as specifically children’s toys that are supplied by specialist companies and sold through independent or multiple toyshops, toy departments in department/ variety stores, grocery multiples and catalogue showrooms. In such a diverse market, there is inevitably some blurring of the definition in some categories such as in the arts and crafts sector, for example. In this instance, general stationery and artists’ materials are excluded, and only colouring sets and painting materials solely aimed at children are included.
For details on the nursery market see Mintel’s Nursery and Baby Equipment – UK, February 2018 Report.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Chana Baram, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The toy retail landscape has seen huge changes over the last year with the loss of Toys R Us. Since its demise many retailers have been fighting to claim their piece of the pie. Given that as many people buy toys online as they do offline, Amazon is one of the retailers that gained the most from the loss of the retailer, as many feel that buying toys online gives them access to better prices.
