Toy Fair 1999 – Part 1.
10 years ago was the last time I went to Toy Fair. As you may know, Toy Fair is kind of an insiders look at upcoming toys. As a Hasbro employee, I had gone a few times, but only to Hasbro’s portion of it. To get into all of it, you need to be a buyer or a member of the press. Sure, you can wander around and look in the windows, and some sales folks wander the halls giving out free samples (I still have my "Tangles" from one of my prior trips), but without the badge, you don’t get into any of the showrooms.
