Hello again my friends and welcome back to the continued overview of the Toy Insider’s 2021 “Holiday Of Play”. It was great to see so many of the faces that we’ve missed over the past few events based on the pandemic because while Zoom and WhatsApp video chat is nice, it doesn’t replace that one on one connection. I’m going to get right back into it from where I left off HERE and if you wanted to spend a little extra time on the website and see that the virtual happening was like just click HERE. Here are some more of the Aphmau “MeeMeows” plushies. As someone who loves cats this were of great appeal to me.

Hello again my friends and welcome to what I am sure will be a fun read for you all. So we are once again celebrating the Toy Insider’s “Holiday Of Play” event and after three virtual happenings this one was back to being in-person and I was so excited about that. The pandemic made large gatherings like this difficult to do but many are slowly coming back and we will have New York Comic Con and Anime NYC returning after each bypassed a year.

For the past couple of years, The Toy Insider has held the “Holiday Of Play” at a venue called Current down in the Chelsea Piers. Its a smaller event space than the one used by their Sweet Suite and hence a more exclusive invite to get.

Greetings my friends, its time to lend some overview opinion to our friends over at the Toy Insider. By now I am certain that you know about them since we’ve been hitting their events for about six years but based on the COVID-19 Pandemic, their amazing “Sweet Suite” will once again be done in the virtual sense. I’m going to present the same kind of exploration as I did with the 2020 “Sweet Suite” and its companion “Holiday of Play @ Home” so let’s examine the exhibitors that are present today.

The way I did this those past times was screen grab the exhibitor room and then offered up some opinion on it all and now without any further adieu here is the virtual “Main Floor”. This presentation was more fun that I initially expected and it was like being inside a video game.

It wasn’t so long ago when we covered the annual “Holiday Of Play” event that our friends over at The Toy Insider/Pop Insider host. Much like this year’s “Sweet Suite”, the event was also done in a virtual space and a refresher of the adventure can be found HERE. Much like the Sweet Suite, when the event is over you are given a box of goodies and I am once again unboxing the swag in the video you will find below. Enjoy.

Now let’s dissect the content in photos as well for good measure. It begins with a box 🙂

Back in July we participated in the first ever Toy Insider “Sweet Suite at Home” which in a nutshell was a virtual version of their always awesome in-person happening.  My overview of that can be found HERE in case you missed it.  Now it was time to do their holiday event known as the “Holiday Of Play” which as expected was also going to be a virtual event.  Since that other coverage worked I was going to repeat the process so into the web we go…

Here are the presenting exhibitors and I was going to try and say “hello” or visit as many of the virtual booths as possible.   Now I should mention that some companies are present to ask questions while some have videos ready for you to watch with the means of sending messages to get more information post event.
