By now most of you know that we hit a lot of the major Toy Events in NYC with the Toy Fair, Toy Insider’s “Sweet Suite” and “Holiday Of Play” and “TTPM (which stands for Toys, Tots, Pets and More) and while we lend focus to the output of the companies being showcased at these awesome happenings, we don’t always get to laud some of the other cool things that they are getting involved in. Recently, I was speaking to one of my most trusted toy reps and was alerted to this cool initiative by Playmonster and The Orangutan Project. Check out the full scoop down below and I’ll return with some closing editorial.
The Press Release:
PlayMonster has joined forces with The Orangutan Project to raise awareness for the protection and conservation of orangutans and their habitat. Coinciding with National Orangutan Day on Aug.19, 2019, PlayMonster has committed to a year-long Green Partnership and plans to support The Orangutan Project with initiatives across North America.
Hello my friends and welcome back to another exciting adventure here on “The Chronicles”. The summer was here in full sway and while its getting hot, the special events and happenings are even hotter. One such event that we have recently enjoyed is the “Sweet Suite” that is curated by our friends over at The Toy Insider. Longer tenured site readers know about them already but the newbies might need a tad bit of education about them.
The Toy Insider is a collective of industry experts that examine and share the findings about the hottest toys and games that are hitting the shelves and the “Sweet Suite” event is where they bring in the companies behind these items and put them face to face with those YouTube personalities, Social Media Influencers and members of the media (that’s us). The event was once again held at Pier 60 down in the Chelsea Piers area and when you walked in there was this awesome Statue of Liberty greeting you. This was made with a 3D printer to my knowledge.
This ballroom maze was also at the entrance for those who chose to brave it. I did but sadly there is no video of me doing it although I did shoot a clip of the whole thing from the pathway you see to the right in this image. It was really cool.
Hello again my friends and welcome back. I’m continuing on with the exploration of The Toy Insider’s “Holiday Of Play” event which was held at the Manhattan Penthouse. The first chapter of this coverage can be seen HERE if you somehow missed it and since we are walking aisle by aisle you’ll want to look at that one first.
