The Big Toy Book Unveils the First-Ever Universal Holiday Toy Catalog App

New York, NY  (  Today, The Big Toy Book® announced the beta launch of the very first universal toy catalog into the iTunes App Store.

Recreating Toy Catalog Fun for Today’s Tech-Savvy Kids

Unlike retailer catalogs, The Big Toy Book’s catalog app allows users to browse over 200 of today’s most sought-after toys regardless of which retailer is carrying them. Through the app, children can easily:

  • Create personal profiles
  • Browse over 200 of today’s most popular toys
  • Circle toys they love with just a touch of the screen
  • Build wish lists
  • Share wish lists and retailer availability

Simplified Sharing and Shopping for Parents

With parental permission, users can share their toy wishes via Facebook or email. Recipients of a child’s Big Toy Book® wish list will receive full product descriptions, images, suggested age, MSRP and links to multiple retailers carrying the toys listed.

“It can be challenging keeping track of the multiple catalogs our children mark for us. As parents raising children in a tech-savvy world, we wanted to simplify the shopping and sharing process,” says Laurie Schacht, Co-Publisher of The Toy Insider and founder of The Big Toy Book®.

Social Shop- Online Window Shopping

In addition to the app, consumers can enjoy the same simplified shopping experience on, as well as “Social Shop”— which Corine Ingrassia, Owner of and Social Media Director for The Big Toy Book® describes as “virtual window shopping.” “We’re excited about the Social Shop because it is giving our community a bigger voice on the site. It’s like walking through the mall with your friends, browsing the shelves and sharing opinions.”

The Big Toy Book® beta app is free and currently available through the iTunes App Store for Apple’s iPad. iPhone and Android versions coming soon.
