Read the Sept/Oct issue of Progressive Preschool

The Sept/Oct issue of Progressive Preschool is available now, a double-show preview special issue which brings all the latest news from the nursery, entertainment and toy industries together in one place.

With so many pages dedicated to two of the industry’s biggest trade shows – Kind und Jugend and Brand Licensing Europe – there’s plenty of newness to keep everyone happy in the latest issue of Progressive Preschool.

This year’s Kind und Jugend show (19 – 22 September) looks set to be a strong one for the nursery contingent, many of whom will be heading out to next week’s show in Cologne, Germany.

Outside of the UK Pavilion the sheer size of Kind und Jugend means that there’s always something interesting going on and something new to see. The show preview is a great way to take an overview of what will be on show. It’s already looking like a strong offering, with plenty of new launches, fresh product and even one or two top secret surprises.

Taking place from 1 – 3 October in its new home at London’s ExCel, Brand Licensing Europe will be bringing the latest in character-driven preschool product news to the industry. Our extended licensing feature speaks to a number of the key and emerging players in the sector to find out what they’ll be bringing to this year’s show.

We have also focused on a number of other categories in this issue – pushchairs, early feeding, electronic toys and dolls.

With all this in addition to our regular in-depth product features, consumer research, insightful columns and other essential industry information, this issue once again goes a long way to helping retailers understand all that is happening in the children’s sector – not just what they already know.

Enjoy – and if you have any news or ideas for us to look at in the future, please don’t forget to get in touch!
