Toy Fair 2015

We ran out of gas on the trip to NYC and spent the night in a gas station parking lot waiting out a Pennsylvania blizzard heading home, but this interview was worth a few minor inconveniences. 

Toy Fair 2016

We said we'd be back as Exhibitors and we were! 

Toy Fair 2017

We made a new friend and he had a camera! First interview with Al "Sugar" Cayne and his crazy fishbowl lens.
