I will be attending the NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL TOY FAIR in New York City Feb 13-16, 2016. I am a first time attender and going as media since I have a blog. There will 2000 exhibitors from all over the world bringing all the new toys that will come out this year. I feel very privilege to be able to attend this event.
I will be going all 4 days traveling into by train from Mt. Kisco. It will be long days for me as I normally sitting at home behind my computer at my desk or going on walks. So it won’t be that bad for walking around the Javits Center. I been passed it many times never inside it.
New this year is Play Fair 2016 is in NYC at the Javits Center on February 13 and 14, 2016. This is an inaugural event, hosted by the Toy Industry Association(TIA) and LeftField Media, for families and toy collectors to enjoy a weekend in New York and experience an interactive, fun-packed event with presenting sponsors LEGO Systems, Inc. and Nickelodeon, as well as other toy and family brands, including Mattel, Hasbro, Warner Bros. Pictures, Crayola and Toys”R”Us. I will not b attended that part.
