The Disruption Report: Tariffs & Toy History
Global Toy News

The Biden administration’s announcement of new tariffs on Chinese EVs and component parts last week reawakens the issue of protective trade policies. The goal is to protect the growing EV business in the United States and protect it from what the administration has expressed is unfair competition from overseas. This is distinct from some of the Trump-era tariffs, which were largely political and punitive, did little to protect U.S. industries, and raised prices on consumers without much, if any, benefit. Protective tariffs while also potentially raising consumer prices for domestic goods als ..read more

Toyetic Oppression: Black Toys and Black People
Global Toy News

In my position as Research Specialist for Black Play and Culture, I am often asked to provide a metric for determining Black playthings. Is it Black because it was produced by Black people? Is it Black by virtue of it bearing the image of a Black person? Is it Black because Black people are the intended audience? As a result of a recent cataloguing excursion into The Strong’s collections, I now wonder if any of these questions are sufficient for the exploration of playthings of, for, or depicting peoples of the African diaspora. It might be more useful to explore Black playthings by whether t ..read more

After writing and talking about them for the past few months, the Toymaster May Show and Las Vegas Licensing Expo are finally almost upon us.

Obviously we have had to adopt the ‘divide and conquer’ strategy, as several of these shows overlap – but someone will be present at each ev ..read more

BY JAY FOREMAN After five of six weeks, the spring LA sales preview marathon is finally over! This process began the week of March 25th for many of us, with key Walmart buyers traveling to LA to preview Spring ’25 with essential vendor partners and finally ended May 3rd!   That first week was reserved exclusively for Walmart US and WM Canada, so, as you can imagine, most vendors had between one and eight meetings throughout the week. While it’s always “go time” when you pitch to Walmart, and you need to have your act together, this was an “ease in” to the selling season allowing us time ..read more
