Toy Fairs 2019 New York, London, Nuremberg: Dates, New Toys and More

The new 2019 toys will be revealed at the Toy Fairs 2019.

Within weeks after the end of the Holiday shopping season, toy makers unveil their new toys for the next Holiday season. The three big toy fairs are scheduled to take place traditionally at the beginning of the year. The first Toy Fair 2019 takes place in London in January. Next is the large Spielwarenmesse in Germany and the Toy Fair 2019 in New York will take place in the middle of February.

As we have seen in 2018, you don't have to wait for the Holiday shopping season to buy the new toys. Toy makers tend now to release their toys earlier than ever. We have seen toys that are clearly aimed at the Holidays to go on sale in the middle of summer.

It will be interesting how the toy industry will counter the trend of falling toy prices. The margins must be a nightmare right now for most toy makers. In 2016, Spin Master could charge $60 for an interactive electronic pet like the Hatchimals. Now prices are down to about $10 for electronic pets like the Pomsies or Wrapples. The 2018 Hatchimals HatchiBabies is on sale right now for $14.99 at Amazon. How toy makers are still able to make money on these is a mystery to me.

If we will see the hottest Holiday toy of 2019 at the Toy Fairs 2019 remains to be seen. In 2018 there was no single hottest Holiday toy. The L.O.L. Surprise brand dominated toy sales, that's for sure. There was no pain in finding Holiday toys in stock. The supply was strong until the last minute on most toys.
