We’re pretty happy about our NYC Toy fair 2008 coverage, hundreds of photos and dozens of posts round the clock during the event. Looking around online I think we had the most complete coverage, especially of DIY/Science and learning products. We skipped a lot of awful at the Toy Fair, but we hope showcasing some of the kits, science and engineering centric products helps these companies and parents out there find each other. We also tried to highlight “Made in USA” companies, with all the lead and other contaminants found in imports over the last couple years, being made in the USA is now a desired feature. There were over 20 lead testing companies, it was out of control.
We tried to showcase old-tech meets new tech and the crafty side of the fair – thanks everyone who met us at the fair and toured with us!
