Directories

Richard Gottlieb's Global Toy Experts has worked with Gameplan Europe to provide you with the most up to date information on doing toy business in The United Stated and internationally in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. If you are looking to get into the toy or game industry and not sure where to start, this is an amazing resource tool to help point you in the right direction.

(These directories also include shipping and handling in the purchase price.)

With these directories you can:

  • Contact toy buyers by name and category in the 48 most important toy markets

  • Invite toy buyers to your stand at toy fairs

  • Send samples or information to buyers

  • Check which are the most important retailers in each market

  • Check if your importer-distributors have listings with the important retail chains

  • Check market values to prioritize your export efforts

  • Find distributors or sales agencies to sell your products in 48 countries

  • Understand the basic facts about each of the 48 toy markets

Important Notification about the New 2019 Directories
In order to comply with the newly introduced EU General Data Protection Regulation we had to reformat the information provided in our directories:


The International Directory of Toy Importer-Distributors remains unchanged. All importer-distributors listed in the countries of the European Union have given consent to their details being listed in this directory.


For the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers it was not possible to get consent from the buyers within the EU to list their details. Therefore the directory lists a generic email address (where possible) for the purchasing department, but no buyer names and only occasional buyer email addresses, if consent was given. In the countries not affected by GDPR legislation we continue to list names of buyers by category and email addresses of buyers. In order to compensate for the less detailed information provided, we have included the US Directory of Mass Market Toy Buyers in the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers. This means there is no longer a separate directory for the US Mass Market Toy Buyers, but when you purchase the International Directory of Retail Toy Buyers you will also receive full contact details of toy buyers in over 130 retail chains in the US covering
mass merchandisers, supermarkets, sporting goods, craft, book and many other channels which carry toys.

Ambassador to the Kingdom of Walmart

This book is currently SOLD OUT

A new book by expert business commentator Richard Gottlieb that opens your mind to new ways of growing your business in the US consumer products market. Be warned that when you read this book you will be challenged to reconsider the very basis of how we think of our customers, our businesses, and ourselves. Consider some of the questions raised:

Do we really believe that a salesperson should be calling on a customer like Wal-Mart? With annual revenue that would make some first world nations envious, shouldn't we be employing an ambassador?

Do we really think that baby boomers are going to go gracefully into old age? Are we going to try and sell this generation that refused to grow up the same walkers, canes and other accoutrements of old age that fit their parents? Hardly!

Have we thought about what is going to happen when there are not enough brick and mortar consumers to support the current size of our super center retailers? Will they close stores, down size them or will they just go away?
