ToyDirectory and TDmonthly Magazine’s 26,500 registered retailers are always looking for new products and new manufacturers. And what they want more than anything is up-to-date and usable contact information.

This year, as ToyDirectory enjoys its tenth anniversary, we celebrate the fact that we have helped many manufacturers gain entry into new stores through their listings on ToyDirectory and ToyShow Preview & Highlights in TDmonthly. Readers can simply click on a company’s name and learn everything they need to get those products into their stores.

Since 1996, ToyDirectory has offered a variety of services that allow retailers to see more of a manufacturer’s products, learn more about them and contact that company directly.

Here’s what just a few of our clients have to say about how ToyDirectory and TDmonthly work for them, including those we videotaped at the American International Toy Fair in New York, 2006:

Mic-o-Mic America
