Toy Fair 2013, February 10-13, New York City!

Hey guys,

Guess what's just around the corner?



Toy Fair 2013!! As the banner says, it will be held in New York City, US.

I spoke to the PR office, and got the following info:

The Toy Fair 2013 will take place February 10-13, 2013 (Sunday-Wednesday) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and showroom locations.

The show hours are as follow:
10:00am-6:00pm on Sunday,
9:00am-6:00pm Monday & Tuesday
9:00am-4:00pm on Wednesday.

The Javits Center is located at 11th Avenue between 34th and 38th Streets, New York, NY 10001.

For those that don't know what this show is, it is where over 1,000 toy manufacturers come to show off their product range for the coming year.

Here is a video of last years Fair:


Last year also had some famous faces - here's Twlights Taylor Lautner playing with the 2010 Nerf Raider:

(Always thought 'Team Jacob' was better  ;P )
 
Sakar International will be the PR company hosting Hasbro's Nerf 2013 product stand, at booth 1930, 1731 and 1831 (expect a BIG stand!).
 
2 other companies will be hosting Hasbro products, John N Hansen So Inc (Hasbro Sports booth: 2051) and Winning Solutions Inc (Hasbro board games booth: 6013 & 6009).
 
Unfortunately, this show is closed to the general public, but you can obtain Press Passes if you are a blogger.

  1. By "spoke to the PR office", do you really mean 'looked on the website'?

    Or did you actually place an international call for information you could have Googled for free?

  2. Hi Anonymous! Yep placed an international call. I always call and introduce myself, its more personal and that way they treat you like a person, than a general fob off :)
