The first quarter of 2012 has flown by! We started off the year finalizing games to show at the New York Toy Fair in early February. It was meant to be a less hectic trip than in past years, as we were intending to show only a few games. This would have given us the chance to be able to network with other game-industry peers, enjoy the seminars, parties, and other activities. However we came home with over 25 submission requests! We even met with several new companies. It was a very productive Toy Fair and we were happy to see lots of familiar faces and make some new friends.
Since then we have been working hard to get those game submissions out to all the companies that requested them. We’re almost finished and we’re really excited about some of the new ideas and technologies that have been developed. We have been collaborating with other game designers and engineering firms to come up with some really interesting projects. Hopefully we will be able to reveal all of the new stuff we’ve been working on soon!
In March we went to Toy Fest West in Long Beach. It was our first trip to this show, and we really enjoyed it. The Long Beach show was much less busy for us than the New York Toy Fair and we were able to take the time to network and see new products throughout the weekend. It was also nice to catch up with some of the toy companies that we missed in New York.
In the meantime, we are continuing to develop and test play several games for submission later this year. We are also planning many other shows and activities for the Spring and Summer. Be sure to contact us if you are a school, children’s charity, or military organization as we try to support these groups when we can. Check back with us soon for more news and updates.
