Hello again my friends and welcome back to my coverage of the 2018 “Sweet Suite” which is an event that’s organized by the folks over at The Toy Insider. If you are somehow just joining us today for some reason, then you are going to want to click HERE first so you can enjoy the two chapters that preceded this one. Let’s go.
Nintendo had a small section of their own which was quite popular. Several new and recent games were on display to try out and those attending were able to try and win a prize. I am a TERRIBLE gamer so it took me a little doing.
As noted only a few posts ago, my exploration of the 2016 Toy Fair was done and while a considerable amount of my narratives will be located on PiercingMetal.com there are other items that I found of real interest and fell outside of my usual wheelhouse. As a scribe you also meet some awesome reps from numerous different companies and this post focuses on what was observed at Fat Brain Toys. Take a look.
Skeleton Pete and I had gotten to the point of expanded exploration at this point of the convention and what I mean by that is how we were between the locked in appointments and now was the perfect time to see what else could be discovered. The large bins with this colorful goop type stuff caught my eye and I learned from the Chizcomm PR rep Stephanie that it was known as magic sand. I grew up on Play Doh, Silly Putty and even those grosser things like “Slime” so found the sand to be super interesting.
This stuff was amazing. It really felt like sand and yet there was nothing on your hands when you were done mushing it around between your fingers or molding shapes. Even the famous clays I grew up with didn’t offer that to happen to you.
