Readers of my adventures here on “The Chronicles” know full well that one of the special events that I love to attend each and every summer is The Toy Insider’s “Sweet Suite”. This affair is a wonderful one and brings together scores of amazing companies and their reps to showcase the “must have” toys and games. If you’re new to these narrative, let me tell you that the folks at The Toy Insider really know their stuff and I was happy to have met them at the annual Toy Fair several years ago. Of course the lay of the land right now is that physical events are pretty much impossible and the need to go virtual is a necessity. Such was the case for this soiree and I’ve culled together some visuals in a fun little overview that begins with a login…..Let’s go.
Now that we’ve successfully logged in, its time to look around the show floor and as you can see its quite impressive. I felt like I was a character in a video game because as you can see the overall vibe you see once “inside the matrix” gives you that sense.
Greetings my friends, and welcome to some overview from an event that I have come to look forward to each and every year for the last few years. I’m talking about non other than The Toy Insider’s “Sweet Suite”, which is a toy industry expert curated happening that showcases some amazing companies and their upcoming awesome. With The Toy Insider launching a very geek-centric outlet called “The Pop Insider”, I decided to post more of the collector stuff over on PiercingMetal which you can observer by clicking HERE.
Hello again my friends and welcome back to another chapter of my exploration of the 2018 Toy Insider “Holiday Of Play”. As I’ve mentioned before, this annual event is super duper exclusive so we are honored to participate. I’ll pick up where I left off and speak occasionally while letting the images do the talking. Let’s play.
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.
