You’ll never hear us complain about the weather, but boy was it cold this weekend in NYC! Luckily, we spent a huge part of our time indoors at the Toy Fair NY, our FOURTH so far and best yet. Yes, we know, every edition of every fair and show we go to is the best to date but we can’t help it if it’s true 😉
Highlights: we met awesome new friends at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and interesting new clients which you’ll probably hear about later this year. Here’s a pic we took with Taka, from our Japanese distributors Cast, for instance:
We also met a few new Kickstarter backers, which is always nice – we love getting to know everyone who put so much faith on us!
Our booth was tiny but we were quite proud of it, all stuffed with Electric Loogs. Dinamita joined us for the four days to play some tunes and jam with whoever stopped by to take a peek. We sort of provided the soundtrack for the show, if we may say so 🙂 Here are Dinamita and Laurence giving the harp Blues a go:
Toy Fair is ALWAYS a great opportunity for us to also check out what else is going on in the industry. And being huge kids-at-heart, we were fascinated with the plethora of cool, new and classic toys, all under one roof. There were Lego blocks, balls, giant plush bears, gadgets and gismos a-plenty, whosits and whatsits galore. Who could ask for more?
