Toy Fair comes to a close

I’ve made it to my last appointment, and the Javits Center is being cleared out for another year.

I have to say, despite the foot pain, the long hours, and the stress, this was one of my most productive Toy Fairs by far. I saw more of the show than ever before, and I made sure to break into some other toy areas I haven’t touched on before.

My coverage will still be coming out for days it seems, with some companies even saying they would rather I wait a week or two.

I will say, when I get to my wrap up I’m going to have some interesting thoughts. There is a seismic shift happening in the industry and I’m not quite sure how it’s going to play out quite yet. Things are changing, though, and for the better I believe.

I’m in NYC for a few days still, but at least the Javits Center and I have parted ways.
