We’re Back from New York City by Kitty Robertson Morse, Heirloom Wooden Toys

February 16, 2011

I love that we get to go to New York each year for the International Toy Fair!  It’s the largest industry trade show of its kind in the world.  I’m not sure I love New York in February, being a thin-blooded California girl, but that’s how it goes.

Last year was our first owning Heirloom Wooden Toys, so this was our second time at Toy Fair.  It was great to meet our vendors face to face and to be able to see – in person – many of the products we sell.  We also met some great new vendors and are getting ready to add hundreds of new products to the site.  Our goal for this year is to have all the products we select added before the end of March – that’s a lot of work to do! 

Our existing vendors are also coming out with new catalogs and lots of great new products we’ll be bringing you in the next few weeks, so stay tuned to the email newsletter and our facebook page for announcements and some great deals.

Like last year, the Westminster Kennel Club dog show was happening the same weekend.  Last year we stayed at the Pennsylvania Hotel, which is right across the street from where the WKC show is and is dog-friendly – so hundreds of dogs were staying there too!  It was a unique experience – riding the elevator with a 250 lb Bull Mastiff doesn’t happen every day – and though we didn’t stay in the same hotel this year, we did go by and hang out in the lobby for awhile to watch the parade of amazing dogs go by.  Photos to follow!
