Toy Collector Magazine launches Web site, announces June 1 release date for first digital issue A new era in toy collecting has arrived with the launch of ToyCollectorMagazine.com, companion site to Toy Collector Magazine, the new digital PDF publication available free of charge on June 1.
News-Antique.com - Apr 29,2007 - LOS ANGELES – A new era in toy collecting has arrived with the launch of ToyCollectorMagazine.com, a multifaceted Web site expressly designed for collectors of antique, boomer and modern toys and trains. ToyCollectorMagazine.com is the companion Web site to a free, high-quality digital magazine whose debut issue can be downloaded from the site to view in wide-screen PDF format beginning June 1. Published by QM4G Media and using the latest digital technology, Toy Collector Magazine will be packed with informative, cutting-edge articles written by the country’s top specialist writers, many of them seasoned toy collectors themselves. “We hope our magazine will bring together the global toy-collecting community,” said co-publisher James D. Bunte. “So much has been said about the negative impact the Internet has had on toy collecting. We’re turning the tables and using the Internet to revitalize and grow the hobby for the future.”
The ToyCollectorMagazine.com Web site, which serves as a toy-related news portal, has been soft-launched one month ahead of the magazine’s debut so prospective readers can get a sneak preview of the first issue and sign up for e-mailed free-issue alerts.
On the Web site, visitors can opt to read news stories about antique, postwar or contemporary toys, banks and trains, with coverage of toy auctions, shows and club gatherings; previews of upcoming toy events and interviews with fascinating collectors. “We believe the quality of writing and reporting in both the magazine and Web site will encourage visitors to learn about not only their own particular interests, but other toy subcategories, as well,” said co-publisher Catherine Saunders-Watson. “ToyCollectorMagazine.com is for everyone with an interest in toys, whether they are a collector or dealer. We want to be the one-stop-shop for the toy hobby, where enthusiasts can count on reading timely news and entertaining features.”
Visit Toy Collector Magazine’s Web site at www.toycollectormagazine.com. Download issue no. 1 on or after June 1st. Subsequent issues will be available on the 1st of every month, free of charge, and will be archived on the Web site.
