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.

“Blogger Bash is a conference designed for experienced digital influencers. Whether your influence is on your personal blog, YouTube channel, or social channels, we want to help grow your impact. If you’re looking to meet with some of the biggest brands as well as discover unique new products, join us! Blogger Bash will also feature some light learning experiences, and it’s a great place to grow your network. At Blogger Bash, you’ll make new connections, expand your community, and strengthen your voice.”

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.

This looked cute and its called “Splashlings”.  The premise is “an ocean full of friends”.  That sounds nice doesn’t it?  Let’s look.

Checking Out “Sweet Suite” 2016; Chapter 3

Welcome back to my continued presentations from the “Sweet Suite” 2016 event that was recently held as a part of the Blogger Bash on the Cornucopia Majesty yacht on Pier 81. The whole thing is under the mindful eyes of the Toy Insider people and if you’d like to see the previous chapters please click on THIS LINK before continuing as it will bring you up to speed.  I’m up to Chapter Three of the bunch and will continue where I left off with the images.  There were a lot of awesome properties to examine and I’ll chime in as necessary.

Is it just me or does this “Animal Jam” character remind you of Paul Stanley of KISS.  Sure the star is on the wrong side but isn’t that a clever thing that they did here?  I think so.

Checking Out “Sweet Suite” 2016; Chapter 2

Greetings my friends and welcome back to my continued documentation of the 2016 “Sweet Suite” event which was being held on the Cornucopia Majesty yacht as a part of the Blogger Bash conference.  This was my first time at this convention and my first chapter of this series can be examined on THIS LINK.  Please hit that before you continue along so you have a sense of fluidity.  Based on the age groups involved in so much of these product lines we’ve stockpiled our coverage here as opposed to posting on PIERCINGMETAL.com – In our previous chapter we had left off with the Hexbug folks so let’s continue along with them now shall we.

Checking Out “Sweet Suite” 2016; Chapter 1

Hello there my kind readers. So as some of you might know, I’ve been attending the American International Toy Fair convention for the past six years and generally all of that coverage has gone over to the PiercingMetal.com website where I would focus on the superhero and monster movie geek stuff.  However, with that said I decided a couple of years ago to share additional event coverage on The Chronicles for the vendors and companies that didn’t fit within the context of my Metal and Pop Culture site.  Folks who are interested can click on THIS LINK to open a tag of said content.  All of this leads me to this event being discussed in the narrative before you which focuses on a brand new convention to my eyes called the “Sweet Suite”.

The “Sweet Suite” is considered to be THE BIGGEST NIGHT OF PLAY and comes care of the fine folks at Toy Insider.  This is connected to their “Blogger Bash” event which I shall discuss in a later post.  “Sweet Suite” was all about toys for a traditionally younger audience and instead of in your typical hotel or convention center would be on this beautiful boat called the Cornucopia Majesty.  I was excited because I had not been on a boat since a couple of years ago excursion with friends on the Circle Line and while this was going to be docked it was still cool.

My media badge sported the PiercingMetal branding since I’m more known for that outlet than The Chronicles, but perhaps in time that will change and this one will be as loud a voice as my Music Media one.  Only time will answer that one.  As you can see the badge says “Blogger Bash” and I guess this is because the “Sweet Suite” is only a smaller portion of this two day conference.
