Next Stop- Toy Fair 2015 in New York City

By Ashley Brooke, Kewpie83 @KewpieDoll83

Tomorrow morning, I leave for Toy Fair 2015!  Housed at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, New York, this trade show boasts, “1,000 exhibiting manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents to showcase 150,000+ products to nearly 10,000 buyers representing 7,000+ unique retail outlets in 100 countries.”  By all accounts, this show is huge and I expect that I won’t be able to catch everything.

However, I do have some very exciting meetings scheduled with some of the biggest brands in the doll and toy world this weekend and that’s all thanks to you guys! Here’s a short list of companies I’ll be visiting with this weekend– Tonner, Madame Alexander, Mattel, MGA, Spin Master, Double Dutch Dolls, Cayla: The Talking Doll, Lottie and Jakks Pacific.  (Of course, there’s a whole show floor of other companies I’ll be checking out, the ones listed above are just the ones I have appointments for a one on one with!)  I hope to meet up with a few online friends, as well.  I’ve never met any other bloggers/vloggers in person before, so it should be fun! On that note, I have to give a huge thank you to two online dolly friends, Melissa and Char, for all their advice the past few months!!!  Attending Toy Fair is definitely a little more complicated than attending an anime/comic convention!

I’ll be taking photos with my DSLR camera and will most likely be slow to update for a week or so.  My goal is to sort through footage right after I get back, though, so I can get it posted here in a timely manner!  (I also have a few reviews that I put on hold– I’ll post those soon, too!)  For occasional updates this week, ‘like’ my facebook page.

That’s it for this quick little update!  See you again soon!
