It’s been a busy few days for us here at TimetoPlayMag.com…
We spent Valentines Day with our favorite girl, Barbie, at the Barbie Fashion Show at Fashion Week in New York City. This year (March 9) marks Barbies 50th birthday, and some of the worlds top designers, including Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Vera Wang, did a spectacular job creating 50 different Barbie-inspired outfits to help celebrate.
Check back next week to see The Toy Guy’s interview with the man behind the brand, Barbie GM & Senior VP Richard Dickson.
Sunday through Wednesday, we headed over to The Javits Center in West Manhattan for the 106th Annual American International Toy Fair. We walked through the 350,000+ square foot building lined with over 100,000 products to find the best new toys to bring to you! The Toy Guy showed off some of his favorites from our make-shift studio in the Mattel showroom high above the Toy Fair main floor (Part 1 & Part 2).
Coming up on Friday, The Toy Guy will appear on Live with Regis and Kelly to show off more of his favorite products from Toy Fair!
Last year after visiting Toy Fair, Chris brought his favorite products, as well as some slime for Kelly and her husband Mark Consuelos! This appearance led to Chris winning a prestigious Relly Award, and taking another slime shower, this time with Kelly and Nick Lachey! Be sure to tune into Live this Friday, and check out The Toy Guy blog on Regis and Kelly’s site!
