Exploring Toy Fair 2017: Safari Ltd.

As previously noted, The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken lifestyle blog was once again attending the American International Toy Fair over at the Javits Center and now with the event over and done with the time has come to load up the outlet with all of the amazing sights and products that were offered up by some incredible companies. I’m continuing the posts with one of our personal favorites – Safari Ltd. Let’s go.

I’m a big fan of the stuff that comes out from Safari Ltd. and cannot emphasize their quality enough to our readers.  They are both educational (since they look so much like their subject) and fun.  What is better than that.  With this post I’ll be focusing on the new offerings and some more familiar ones as we close out.  Do you not just love this dragon?  I know you do.

The mythical creatures look great and wow, is that a werewolf?  It sure is.

Exploring Toy Fair 2017: Crayola

I’m going to begin our presentation of Toy Fair 2017 visuals with the time-honored brand of Crayola. I’m pretty sure that everyone reading this website has owned a box or ten of their wonderful crayons and now with most of us being parents or older siblings and such to younger ones, the developments from this company are to be admired. Here we go.

I love the Crayola appointment because they have everything at stations and you get walked around to each and every one of them and get a demonstration of the latest product. This first item is called the “Magic Scene Creator” and it looked pretty interesting.  Not only do you color on the screen but you can add these little character plastic pieces.  Neat right?

Scenes From “Blogger Bash” 2016; Chapter 2

Hello again my friends and welcome back to my presentation from the 2016 “Blogger Bash”. This was my first go at the conference and was so far a very interesting experience. If you didn’t see Chapter 1 just click on THIS LINK to rectify that as there is no rush in reading any of these posts. I thought that I would end up with three unique posts from the event but as it turns out this will be the final installment. Take your time, stay awhile.

The folks at the Speck Products table had some cool cases for the iPhone but I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 so this doesn’t help me. A shame since I would have sported one of their wares immediately had they been able to provide one.

Scenes From “Blogger Bash” 2016; Chapter 1

For the past few days I’ve been sharing my findings from an event known as “Sweet Suite” which is organized by the Toy Insider folks and part of a larger conference called “Blogger Bash”. If you are just now discovering this website, I’d love for you to see the “Sweet Suite” posts and you can do that by clicking on THIS LINK. When invited to the Blogger Bash part of the conference I gladly said “sure” but what exactly was this all about? I’ve pasted the overall goal down below for you to educate yourself.

As you might have expected, this conference would also be on the Cornucopia Majesty yacht that we were all on yesterday. All of the toy representatives had left and in their place would be a slew of other interesting companies. I couldn’t resist sharing a couple of pics of this beautiful boat.

My badge from “Sweet Suite” was going to work out for this event as well so there was no time wasted at the check in area.  It was just get back on the boat and start exploring.

Checking Out “Sweet Suite” 2016; Chapter 4

Hey there once again my readers, you’ve safely arrived at the fourth and final chapter of my “Sweet Suite” 2016 event coverage.  This super cool event was only a few hours in length and a part of the larger Blogger Bash that was happening on the Cornucopia Majesty yacht on Pier 81.  As I’ve mentioned before, its all done under the guidance of the Toy Insider people and it was my first time attending.  To see the previous chapters please click on THIS LINK before continuing as it will bring you up to speed.  I’m going to continue along with where I left off in the previous chapter with the Playmates Toys offerings and their wonderful “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” license.
