Once again, I attended Toy Fair, and wandered every aisle! I didn’t visit every showroom, since some required appointments, or weren’t that interesting, but I made a point to visit those with comics licensees, as well as geeky fun!
Here’s my photo blog, in four parts, with a few company-specific reports for those with LOTS of product!
I slept in on Saturday, and arrived around Noon at Javits. I decided to be systematic, so I started at aisle 100 and worked my way north. The first booth that caught my eye:

These are magic tricks, available as cards, or as small boxes. The comic tells the story of the trick. You’re then given a secret password for their website, where a video explains how the trick is presented. https://themagicclassroom.com/ Kahootz Toys
