The Press Release:
As COVID-19 remains insufficiently resolved, The Toy Association has announced that it will not conduct an interim trade show in New York for 2021, which was previously planned to take place May 1 to 4. Plans for Toy Fair Dallas remain on course for October 2021 and providing an ongoing mix of physical and digital business opportunities for the industry will be the Association’s focus this year.

“Our foremost consideration is the health and well-being of the global toy and play community and setting a clear path forward,” said Steve Pasierb, president & CEO of The Toy Association. “We want to provide our exhibitors, retail buyers, and the larger toy and play community with certainty on important destination shows and the ability to take advantage of immediate opportunities through our year-round buying and selling platform.”

Rundown Of “The Honeymooners” Marathon On PIX11 12/31/2020-1/1/2021

Last year, I took the time to line out the complete rundown of the annual marathon of episodes of “The Honeymooners”. After the year that we all have had I can honestly say that this classic comedy is the perfect way to both close and open up a hopefully promising new year. Based on the pandemic, there are even more of us under lockdown as the year closes up and while there are still specials with tons of autotune, my only real interest is the final countdown to the New Year. As in the past marathons, some of the funniest and best of the episodes will be aired so head over to WPIX 11 and spend some time in Brooklyn with Ralph Kramden, Ed Norton, Alice Kramden and Trixie Norton and just relax. The shows begin at 11PM and run continuously into the next day with a brief pause for area news at 4:30AM before picking back up again at 9AM. Let’s take a look.


December 31st:

11:00AM – The Bensonhurst Bomber
11:30AM – Unconventional Behavior

The Press Release:
Today, ReedPop – the world’s leading producer of pop culture events – announced that they will be retiring BookExpo, BookCon, and UnBound, effective immediately.

Earlier this year, ReedPop was forced to make the decision to cancel the in-person BookExpo, BookCon, and UnBound 2020 events, pivoting to BookExpo Online and BookConline bringing the industry together virtually for a global celebration of books. With continued uncertainty surrounding in-person events at this time, the team has concluded that the best way forward is to retire the current iteration of events as they explore new ways to meet the community’s needs through a fusion of in-person and virtual events that will reach larger audiences than they ever could before. The ReedPop team is actively engaging in conversations with publishers, booksellers, and other partners, and with their feedback and ideas they will together agree how to best rebuild the events in the future.
