INTRODUCTION

On behalf of the twenty-one members of the International Council of Toy Industries, we are pleased to introduce the second edition of World Toy Facts and Figures.

This booklet has been prepared to provide individuals, governments and their agencies, as well as other interested groups, with information about the worldwide toy industry. Although ICTI was formed in 1974, this is the second year that we have been able to collect significant data on worldwide toy sales. We are indebted to the NPD Group for their work on our behalf.

As more and more people begin to prosper and afford toys for their children, toy business throughout the world becomes more significant. The members of ICTI who are toy associations representing virtually all of the toy producing and toy consuming countries recognize their obligations to the public. We have a responsibility to supply both safe and reliable products, market our products in a fair and open manner and produce our products under ethical manufacturing conditions.
