Toy Fair '09!

Toy Fair '09!Toy Fair '09! Running a toy store takes a lot of hard work and a lot of hard play! Sometimes our work and our play look a lot alike!

One of the fun things we get to do for our work as toy store owners is to visit NYC each year to take part in the New York Toy Fair! The New York Toy Fair is held at the Javitt's Center, and over 100,000 products from over 1200 exhibitors are on display! Talk about sensory overload! It took us 2-1/2 days to walk the aisles, and we could have used even more time!

One of the most exciting parts of the Toy Fair is meeting the people who develop the toys we carry on our shelves. We get to hear how they came up with such great ideas, and how they took their ideas and made them into reality! Their stories are fascinating and inspiring!


Our next couple of blogs will give you a glimpse at some of the cool new toys that we found on our visit to the New York Toy Fair!
