What is it?
ToyDirectory is a B2B site where retailers can find information on companies
and their products. The site features various company profile pages that
operate like highly interactive yellow pages. Each manufacturer's listing
will contain all the information you need to reach that company.
Several tools are available to our retailer subscribers, including a catalog
request form, subscription to our free monthly newsletter (TDmonthly
Magazine®) and a trade events calendar.
How does it work?
To begin searching for manufacturers, refer to the section in the upper
left hand corner entitled "Search For Manufacturers." Directly below that
you'll see two links, "By Product Category" and "By Company Name." If
you click the former, a categories page will pop up and you'll be able
to search for companies by choosing from our 114 different categories.
If you're looking for a specific company and choose the latter, you'll
be able to search for them alphabetically.
Another way you can search is by utilizing the Toy Product Search function
found towards the top of the home page. This search engine will search
the company names as well as their product names to ensure you find what
you're looking for.
