Toy Fair 2010 – Days 1 and 2

It’s after midnight, and I should be asleep. The battery on my computer isn’t going to last long, and if I go find the power cable, I’ll probably wake up the baby, who’s sleeping in my room (that’s a whole other story).

So I’ll keep it mercifully brief. Toy Fair 2010 is in full swing and as always, there’s lots to see.

So far, I’ve made good progress on the larger upper level of the show:

Yeah, there’s a whole other level I haven’t even touched yet. But no worries, I still have two days. I’ll get it done.

Of the parts I have seen, I’ve been taking lots of pictures and some videos (not edited or posted yet, but coming soon). Trends are: dropping prices (good), lots of hype around Toy Story 3 (hopefully good), interesting technologies (mostly good, some weird), green/organic/eco-friendly (good), and a surprising number of empty booths (not so good). Manufacturers are playing it safe with modest product introductions. Many are focusing their time and energy on developing and improving their best products, which makes sense.

We’ve met some interesting people. Like him.

I even saw Annabel Karmel from a short distance (love her). We’ve seen so many interesting things. I’ll have lots to report, after I recharge my computer (and myself). For now, I’m running on reserve power, so I’ll just have to say good night.

  1. That toy fair looks enormous.
