"WE'RE NOT THERE" Coverage of Toy Fair 2009!
Coverage by Scott D.M. Simmons
Hey everybody! Welcome back to the "We're Not There" coverage of Toy Fair 2009, being held this week in New York City.
I'm gathering up all the cool links I can find, so you can easily check out pictures of and articles about toys that are coming out from your favorite companies this year! This is the THIRD links round-up I have done, and there should be a fourth coming tomorrow, after the show ends on Wednesday. After that, it will be a return to the normal Toy Related column, with some interviews coming soon.
It's been great seeing all the Toy Fair photos that have been shown of the fun stuff in store, and there are already several things I am hoping to buy in 2009.
