If you’re like most specialty retailers, you’ll wrap up your big holiday orders in late summer/early fall. To make sure you have the data you need on new and best-selling products, TDmonthly Magazine is highlighting categories in our Holiday Preview issues now through July. See this month’s features below; just click on the links to view multiple toys.

There are plenty of items to make this Christmas more green for your customers: taste-friendly, dishwasher-safe lunch boxes from Byndoo, handmade dough from Eco-Kids; and Reeves International’s makedo kits for masterpiece building, just to name a few. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Eco-Friendly Toys.

Kids can give their rooms decorative flair with eco-friendly Wallables in cute jungle and fun licensed themes. And parents can easily assemble multi-purpose modular tables from Connect 2 Play for use around the house. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Furniture and Décor.

The country’s still hurting from recession, so why not teach kids about saving and investing via Money Savvy Generation? Kids can also set up a lab with Be Amazing!’s Big Bag of Science or attend mass with a set from Wee Believers. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Educational Toys.

Kids can study up on geography with puzzles from eeBoo and Smart Play or take a trip back in time as they piece together magazine covers from New York Puzzle Company. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Puzzles.

Dolls are taking a miniature approach this year, from Manhattan Toy’s 6” Beneath the Leaf fairies to Ty’s 4” Li’l Ones. They’re not short on style, though, nor are MGA Entertainment’s Girls from Around the World, created for the specialty market. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Dolls.

Simple USB-bots from Desk Pets can entertain at the computer, as can Kiz Toys action figures — the distinctive character avatars explore islands and embark on adventures in a virtual world. See TDmonthly’s Holiday Preview of Electronics.
