So, it’s here! For the past couple of days, I’ve been indulging in the excitement of Toy Fair, here in NY. Because it’s an industry trade show, I’ve been busy working and meeting with various companies that reached out to me.
In case you haven’t already, be sure to join me on The Next Kid Thing Fan Page and twitter to see my updates throughout Toy Fair.
With thousands and thousands of exhibitors at Toy Fair, it’s obviously going to be difficult to cover every single company. I will, however, try to do a roundup of products that are of interest, and perhaps, the next kid thing.
Yesterday, after my meetings, I spent the majority of my day walking the floor. There are a lot of really great exhibitors, and of course, many new products that are being launched in conjunction with Toy Fair. I made it a point to check out green and sustainable toys, and was quite pleased with the amount of products that have joined this category.
Some companies have been in the Green sector before “green” was its own category. There are literally hundreds of fabulous toys, so for now, here are just a few of my findings. (Please note, these photos are from my phone, but I’ll be sure to share much, much more tonight.)
