Advertising for Toy Stores

Why us?

Toy Hype reaches a wide audience, from toy enthusiasts and collectors, to news sites and bloggers. The age range and demographic is as varied as your customer base and offers you a unique, unobtrusive entry into their daily routine.

Many sites identify an opportunity, but because of the nature of their site it can take a while for search engines to pick that information up on their site and list it. Toy Hype is different, when we write a story and promote it on our front page the information is listed within hours on major search engines.

Store reviews

Permanent Website Review – includes front page post

We provide a full review of your website or store that will take a permanent place on our website under: We will also provide a post on our homepage to the article and to your website. The review will include images, links and product information (if applicable) and feature your company logo and an advert in the side-bar if you wish.

To maintain the integrity of our website, it will be a fair review – highlighting faults as well as triumphs. It also means that readers will take our opinions about your site with more respect. Feel free to take a look at the other reviews we have provided to see the normal format.

If you would like to run a competition for our subscribers, we are happy to discuss logistics with you. Normally, we include a post to outline the competition with a link to your website, and further ‘update’ posts on the front throughout the competition period. A dedicated page on the website can be provided at an extra cost. An advert on the side bar will be placed for the duration of the competition, which can be around 2 weeks to a month.

Monthly Banner placements

The banner adverts on Toy Hype can be sponsored for a variety of pages, sizes and prices. These adverts are for an initial period of 30days, but can be booked for longer at a discounted price.

Prices can be provided for sponsorship of specific products and/or webpage placements (for instance, only to be shown on the Doctor Who page). Positions are based on a first-come, first-served basis and preference will not be given to larger sites as we support the little guys just as much!

For a 125 x 125 banner on the Right hand side of the front page and throughout the site, the cost start from only £10 per month (30days). Get in touch for larger banner sizes such as skyscrapers.

Ad Specs:

  • 125 by 125 pixel size
  • The company or product logo
  • Will link back to the company product page
  • Simple or light animation only
  • Good quality GIFs or JPGs with a max size of 15Kb

The costs for all advertising assume that the client will provide the digital artwork and copy. However, Toyhype has an experienced team of designers and writers on board and can design adverts to your specification from as little as £5.
