The Press Release:
Scientists are baffled by the sudden arrival of a new species of creature at a number of landmark locations all around the world! Apparently called the Wooshi (Woooooooo-sheeeeee), scientists theorize that the Wooshi may well have originated in the heretofore only theoretical dimension of Gor. Since their discovery, researchers have determined that while the Wooshi are generally well-intentioned, their enthusiasm, energy, and general ham-handedness can make for chaotic and frenetic outcomes for the people they come into
contact with – BEWARE THE WOOSHI!!!

An unprecedented discovery, the Wooshi are neither animal or mineral (but slightly bigger than a breadbox), and while still undefined zoologically, they can be described to be short in stature (stocky comes to mind), concerningly if not annoyingly intelligent (bordering on cocky), and apparently fluent in English! Having mysteriously popped up at multiple locations globally, scientists are still struggling to confirm the exact number of Wooshi amongst us, but they guesstimate an oddly exact headcount of 11,111 Wooshi currently on Earth – HOW MANY MORE MIGHT COME?!?

The Press Release:
TTPM, the leader in video product reviews for toys, baby, and pet gear, is excited to announce their Spring 2023 Most Wanted List. The Spring list highlights toys they believe will be fan-favorites across three categories: Imaginative Play, Collectibles, and Creative Play.

This list will help guide parents and gift givers to find the toys that are right for their kids. It’s the ultimate spring shopping list for kids of all ages.”

Hello my friends and lovers of all things toy-related, I am here to once again showcase the rundown of the “Toy Of The Year” finalists as selected by the fine folks over at the Toy Association. Since a lot has changed in our creative presentations since I last discussed this particular topic, I am here to also tell you that you must continue on over to the Ken Pierce Media website for the full rundown and press release. As a content creator who has been attending the Toy Fair since 2011, I’ve come to use both “The Chronicles” and PiercingMetal for event features as time marched on. With the launch of Ken Pierce Media in 2020, I felt that some larger broadcasts worked better via that channel. So please click HERE for the full list and leave any comments you might have about the matter on that site as well.

At the time of this writing its far too early to know if we shall be attending the 2022 Toy Fair but I’d love to continue along with it. At present the Javits Center is open for business once again and we recently attended the New York Comic Con and will be heading to the Anime NYC convention as well in the coming weeks. The world around us is changing on an almost weekly basis so who knows what December or even January will bring. That’s all I have to say about this matter but do head over to Ken Pierce Media to see the rundown and make sure to follow that outlet on the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as well. We’d love to have you along with us there.
