We're back from the American International 2013 Toy Fair

Feb 13, 2013

We're still spinning from all the fun, uh work, we did this weekend at the American International 2013 Toy Fair in NYC.  What a busy day, shuffling our way from booth to booth and trying to not get distracted by all the fun to be had. Wow, kids (and big kids, like us) are in for a treat this Christmas!

Seriously though, we met with some of our favorite puzzle companies to show off our newest artwork from the talented artist we work with.  The meetings went great and we're working out details for some promising new puzzle deals coming up. We also got a chance to see first hand some really interesting interactive puzzles and illuminated puzzles.  This should be a fun year for puzzles.

Of ourse we also checked out the newest puzzles and found some very familiar artwork.  You'll see these images if you browse around the site.  We saw puzzles with artwork by Dennis Lewan, Randy Van Beek, Bill Bell, Melanie Parker, Jenny Newland, Nancy Wernersbach and more.  If you want to see more photo's check out our fb page.
