Hey Friends I am back with another go-round from the recent Toy Insider “Holiday Of Play” event for 2023 that took place at Current at Chelsea Piers. Before I pick up from where I left off, let’s make sure you are fully up to snuff about the hottest picks from those experts in a list you can find by clicking HERE. Once you’ve reviewed that we can continue along with visuals like these Maya Flyers. Nice idea.
Okay so now that I’ve shared the larger news announcement from the Toy Insider press team AND shown all of these items in a post of their own (seen HERE and HERE ICYMI), now its time to bring you with me around the show starting with the entry to the wonderful Current at Chelsea Piers event space.
The signage at the entrance makes sure to let you know who will be participating at the event and this is great should you be arriving uninformed.
This amazing balloon sculpture wizard greeted everyone and there was also a batch of balloon presents. The attendees were encouraged to do a photo op which I bailed on as I was more eager to catch up with contacts and also get a bit of water as I was parched for some reason.
It was just the other day that I shared the Hottest Picks from the folks over at The Toy Insider who recently held their annual “Holiday Of Play” event at the Current at Chelsea Piers event space. If you missed the rundown for any reason you can peruse it by clicking HERE. This photo gallery will begin some of the event coverage that was done by focusing on this same rundown. Enjoy.
The STEM 10 is the list of things that will keep your younger members of the family the most engaged. Remember that with STEM meaning Science, Technology, Engineering and Math these are the products that tap into all that brain energy and helps it find even better focus.
The Press Release:
The Toy Insider, the toy industry’s most influential organization and a trusted go-to resource for parents and gift-givers, unveiled its expert picks today for the best toys, games and gifts of 2023 in its 18th annual Holiday Gift Guide. This year’s hottest toys appear on one of three featured lists: the Hot 20, toys topping every kid’s wish list; the STEM 10, toys boosting STEM skills; and the 12 Under $20, fun-filled and affordable toys.
The media company also launched its interactive Perfect Present Wizard on thetoyinsider.com, helping consumers find the best toys for every child on their holiday shopping lists. The quiz asks five simple questions to determine the child’s age and interests, the desired play value and skill development, and then recommends toys based on the shopper’s budget.
“Unwrapping the perfect toy is pure magic, and every child and gift giver deserves to experience that magical holiday moment,” said Laurie Schacht, Chief Toy Officer, The Toy Insider. “Whether you use our Perfect Present Wizard or browse our Holiday Gift Guide, with a wave of our magic wand, we’ll help you easily find toys that WOW kids across every age and interest—while sticking to your shopping budget!”

Continuing along with some of the fun that was had by “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” at this years Toy Insider “Sweet Suite” over at the Chelsea Piers. Now as some of you recall, once we had the YouTube Channel up and running for this website, I began doing unboxing clips after we had finished this event since all the participants were sent a massive Swag Box. This was loaded to the brim and made for some cool content. Now in 2023 they have changed the game and are no longer sending out the boxes and instead give you a healthy bagful of goodies to enjoy. Truth be told this will likely be better when you consider all of the package thefts that we hear about and will prevent anyone who wants more stuff from complaining that theirs never arrived. While the video is resident on the Channel, I’ve embedded it here along with the individual product photos that will follow it. Let’s go.
