TTPM is an inclusive resource for the latest toys and games, children's books, electronic games, family movies, sporting goods, and “all things play” where consumers can research and find the best playthings. TTPM combines expert reviews (video and written) with live price comparison, sales notifications, one-click purchasing, and product availability at major retailers including Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Toys“R”Us, Babies“R”Us, buybuy BABY, GameStop, Best Buy, Sports Authority, Modell’s Sporting Goods, PetSmart, and Wag.com.
The Shop for Kids app by TTPM allows consumers to shop for toys, games, baby products, sporting goods, electronics, and more gifts for kids. Shoppers can search, browse, or scan a product's barcode to see expert video reviews and up-to-the-minute price comparisons from major online retailers. Shoppers can also see if an item is in stock and click through to buy from the retailer of their choice or bookmark the item to revisit later.
The seasoned TTPM editorial team reviews thousands of products each year, providing comprehensive video and written reviews of toys, baby products, kids’ electronics, sporting goods, and family friendly video games, apps, books, and movies.
TTPM hosts a media event in the spring and fall of each year which gathers manufacturers, entertainment companies, and retailers to showcase each season’s newest playthings and identify the industry's most prevalent product and financial trends. The TTPM Spring and Holiday Showcase events each take place in NYC. During the TTPM Holiday Showcase, TTPM reveals its annual Most Wanted List, naming the top toys chosen by TTPM editors predicted to be in the most in-demand this holiday.
Other features on TTPM include The Playdate,a weekly web series where the TTPM team of toy experts present new products and give away prizes to viewers. New episodes are released every Friday. TTPM also features a collection of voices from parents and people in the toy and children’s entertainment industries on its Play Forum blog, and runs daily giveaway prizes. TTPM is very active on social media, and @TimetoPlay hosts its #TTPMLive Twitter game show every Wednesday using the #TTPMlivehashtag.1
