It seems like it was only yesterday when I was compiling my images and thoughts about the 2018 “Sweet Suite” which you can give a look to by clicking HERE if you are one of our newer readers who might have missed it. It was our third such adventure and now it was time to show you what we found at their annual “Holiday Of Play” which as you might have surmised was also our third such event. Before we get underway with the adventure, I wanted to let you know that I did a quick narrative over on my PiercingMetal.com website that showcased the more Geek themed stuff that I talk about and you can peruse that by clicking HERE. It’s nice to parse out the content like I do with the annual Toy Fair for sure. Once again I would head to the Manhattan Penthouse which is a lovely space for a quasi-intimate affair. I like that I get to take a few snapshots of the city as well from this location because I do so love our Metropolis. Let’s go have some fun.
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.
Greetings website visits, it is nice to find you returning once more to our little home on the web as I continue along with my findings from the 2017 Toy Insider “Sweet Suite” event. I’m down to the wire with this little adventure and if you’re only just joining me now then you’ll want to click HERE first and see all of the previous chapters. I’d hate for you to be confused and not have a proper path laid out for you. There’s a lot to get to so let’s pick up where we left off yesterday with the second photo of the Princess Cakes.
I think I’m going to need this “Spider-Drone” by SkyRocket.
Over the summer I attended my first-ever “Sweet Suite” which is an event that is set up by the fine folks at Toy Insider. I had met them at this years American International Toy Fair thanks to our good friend in media Mr. Skeleton Pete. Shortly after the event, this massive box arrived and I figured it would be fun to do one of those “unboxing” posts, even though I know this stuff is better suited for a YouTube.com channel. I opted to use the Chronicles of Piercing Ken for this post based on the event and the contents of said box being more suited to my folks with kids readership so here we go.
Okay so before I begin I will stress that this is NOT all of the stuff that was in the box. It was massive as you can see and packed to the brim. No complaints on that at all so here we go with something adorable called “Twozies”. They come care of the makers of Shopkins.
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.
