The Chicago Toy & Game Group (CHITAG) has announced it will acquire and assume publishing of the Bloom Report when founder Phil Bloom retires at the end of May. 

Phil Bloom founded and published the report for more than 20 years, alongside a long career with Toys R Us in the US. 

CHITAG founder Mary Couzin said that the organisation was honoured to take over the report. 

"We are honoured to add the prestigious Bloom Report to our family of newsletters serving industry, consumers, educators, media and inventors. 

"Finding ways to inform and connect all members of the toy and game industry is at the heart of our mission.

"It thrills me to be able to serve our community by ensuring the ongoing publication of the Bloom Report," she said. 

Bloom added that he has full confidence the CHITAG team will continue to deliver the level of service expected from the publication. 

"It has been a pleasure to provide this service to the toy industry and I have confidence that Mary Couzin and the CHITAG team will carry on my legacy and continue to provide this valuable service," he said.  

The transition will occur on 30 May.
