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.

Scenes From “Sweet Suite” 2018 @ Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers: Part 1

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.

Checking Out “Sweet Suite” 2016; Chapter 2

Greetings my friends and welcome back to my continued documentation of the 2016 “Sweet Suite” event which was being held on the Cornucopia Majesty yacht as a part of the Blogger Bash conference.  This was my first time at this convention and my first chapter of this series can be examined on THIS LINK.  Please hit that before you continue along so you have a sense of fluidity.  Based on the age groups involved in so much of these product lines we’ve stockpiled our coverage here as opposed to posting on PIERCINGMETAL.com – In our previous chapter we had left off with the Hexbug folks so let’s continue along with them now shall we.
