PiercingKen Goes To American International Toy Fair 2017

Hello readers!!! I’m happy to report that this entertainment outlet of mine was once again attending the American International Toy Fair at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. It’s our seventh year of attendance and the plan is to offer up as many sights and scenes as possible on both the PiercingMetal.com and PiercingKen.com websites.

Exploring Toy Fair 2016: Safari Ltd. & Tonner Doll Company

Welcome back to another group of visuals from the 2016 Toy Fair.  With this installment I am putting two find companies together and shall showcase both the Safari Ltd. stuff with that of the Tonner Doll Company.  Let’s take a look at Safari Ltd. first.

I’ve really enjoyed the items that we find at the Safari Ltd. area when we begin exploring their stuff.  You’ve probably seen a lot of these fine plastic animals for sale at museum gift shops when you make your way out of an exhibit.  Here are some of the popular creations that have been given a remastering treatment since their original debut.

Exploring Toy Fair 2016: Tokidoki

Continuing with the discoveries at the 2016 Toy Fair, its time to get a glance at the Tokidoki Booth.  They always have some awesome stuff.

I didn’t take as many photos of the booth this year but focused on the latest additions to their popular lines.  Tokidoki is big on the “Blind Box” stuff and you never know which one you are going to get until you open it.  Personally speaking this drives me crazy as a collector but this is the new generation of buying and trading ones trinkets.  These are the “Moofia” ones.

Exploring Toy Fair 2016: Gund

We are surely cooking with gas as the fantastic finds from the 2016 Toy Fair continue. I am so very glad to have started using this blog for additional visuals and now we’re going to peruse the Gund booth for a few moments.

Logo - Gund

Gund has been making high quality plush stuffed animals for decades now and you might recall their slogan of “Gotta Get A Gund”. I love passing by this company’s booth because one year they had Grumpy Cat in attendance and another year were showcasing the new Ugly Doll KISS plush dolls. While choosing to expand my visiting of this convention I still keep my geek side close to my heart so focused on anything featuring the properties that I like the most. That finds me beginning with their dolls dressed as popular DC Comics superheroes. This is Griffin and Malone dressed as Superman and Batman respectively.

They had a Flash and Robin (who I later learned was named Hardwin) and a Wonder Woman named Anya who is coming up in a couple of photos.

I’m moving steadily along with the coverage of the 2016 Toy Fair and with this particular narrative will be bringing you some visuals from both the Folkmanis Puppets company and the legendary Madame Alexander. Here we go.

I’ve enjoyed the finds at the Folkmanis Puppets section of Toy Fair since I first began exploring this convention back in 2011. Their high quality puppets are wonderful to look at and to use. The company is also celebrating their fortieth anniversary this year so kudos to that. Let’s check out some of the latest products.
