Have you been to the Chicago Toy & Game Fair? I got to go last year, and I have to admit it is amazing. I got to talk to a lot of the inventors of these games, and they are a very cool bunch. I didn’t bring my kids last year, but there is so much for them to do! This year, however, they are coming!!
The Chicago Toy & Game Fair is held on November 19 & 20 at Chicago’s Navy Pier. It is $10/adult; $5/children; Free for ages 3 & under. It is the largest public toy and game fair in the U.S.! (I can attest to that). At the fair, you get to preview, play and purchase the hottest new toys and games on the market. It is great way to kick-off your holiday shopping. Best of all, there is lots to do for the whole family – Live stage entertainment, free tournaments and contests, Star Wars Breakfast, giant-sized interactive toys and games, costumed characters roaming the Fair, etc. There is also the Young Inventor Challenge. It is free to enter for kids 6-18. Get your kids inventing in this fun challenge, where they’ll exhibit their original toy or game invention and compete for fantastic prizes. Registration required and the deadline to register is October 31st. All participants receive free admission to the Fair for their immediate families.
