Big Blizzard on the way to NYC, Toy Fair

10 Feb

Oh boy, a big storm is on the way to New York City just days before Toy Fair! Well, it’s a blizzard blanketing the entire Eastern Seaboard to be a little more accurate. Check this out:

Looks like it will all clear out by the time the show begins, but traveling in may be a circus.
This begs the question, is Toy Fair destined for a warmer home in coming years, say Orlando or Las Vegas? Let us know your thoughts on if you think that would be a wise move. Would it help boost retailer traffic? Would a Toy Fair outside of New York have the same gusto?

WTHRA show is moving to Long Beach!

9 Feb

The annual Western Toy and Hobby Retailers Association show is moving to Long Beach! OK, so that’s old news for many in the toy biz, but it’s exciting none-the-less, as the 2010 show is approaching fast. The show runs March 27th through March 30th and the new location should be a breath of fresh air for retailers and vendors. It’s on the Queen Mary:

Ok, that’s not true, but wouldn’t that be cool?

As usual, Toyology will have all of our lines on display and we will be very disappointed if you don’t come and play with us!

For retailer sign-up information, lodging, directions, and other general information, please visit the official WTHRA site.

Sorry Pomona, we’ll miss you. I promise to send a postcard.
