Global Toy News

The Global Toy News website is devoted to sharing news, insights, and resources with the toy industry and those who follow it.

Founded by Richard Gottlieb of Global Toy Experts, the site offers thoughtfully written articles that analyse the state of the toy industry, provide a look at toy history, and offer insight into toy manufacturing and licencing in North America. A roster of guest writers contribute articles that peel back the curtain to provide context and a deeper perspective to what mainstream news outlets typically present.

With years of toy-industry experience and connections within the industry, he brings unique insight to the topics covered on the site. We spoke with him for an edition of The Friday Five.
