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.
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.
So as I’ve previously discussed here on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken”, I was once again among the toy industry masses and learning about all of the new awesome products from some amazing companies thanks to the Toy Insider’s annual “Sweet Suite”. The event was held over at Chelsea Piers and in addition to photos and some social media, I did several videos for the YouTube Channel. While these clips are resident on the Channel, I’ve culled them together for our website readers as well.
I just love the innovations from VTech, and these Switch N Go creations are really awesome.
Welcome back my friends, you have arrived at another exciting installment of out Toy Insider “Sweet Suite” 2023 exploration. I’m continuing along in the same fashion as I did with the previous post and segmenting some of the brands together. We love these Toy Insider events and as I mentioned earlier, this one appears to be my eighth straight one. Let’s get on back to the funtastic findings shall we?
The Barbie movie only just opened last week and is doing gangbusters at the box office. Obviously the Mattel folks would be gearing the popular toy line of the same name with releases along those lines.
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.
