THE BIG SHOW – Welcome to Toy Fair 2011

Wow. So, I went to Toy Fair. My story is a blog entry in and of itself, but you’re probably not here for pages of witty observation. The saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words… so let me tell by show.

Some initial pictures!

Now for the bread and butter of this site: Foam shooters and other fun projectile toys!

The Hasbro/Nerf Showroom: New NERF DART TAG, a teaser for the NERF VORTEX line, and Nerf apparel were in the Nerf portion, while I saw everything from RC to BEYBLADES, GI JOE, TRANSFORMERS, STAR WARS and more!)

and an honorable mention to TOOBERS AND ZOTS, while not a foam dart shooter/projectile brand, definitely have a product worth looking into if you have a lot of roleplaying/cosplay elements in your games. They’re a construction set of foam pieces that interlock and wrap around together to make fun shapes like hats and swords and in one case, even wings 🙂

Also, some interesting roleplay/game type stuff at BACKYARD SAFARI/ZILLIONS I took a look there and have some ideas 🙂
