Our booth was a hit in The Chicago Toy and Game Fair that was held in Navy Pier this past weekend! We are incredibly thankful and waving hello to our readers that came by our booth just to let us know that they are reading us.  This of course left us even more inspired in making our very own site even better.  More exciting and bigger news to come later!

We are also currently compiling the 10 best new toys we’ve discovered at Chitag.  This will be posted very soon.

But before anything else, let me take this moment to thank the companies that has sponsored us for giveaways

They make online search even easier! Not only do Hakia’s power engine uses semantic search, it is also the only search engine that provides credible information gathered from librarians. Wouldn’t you rather get credible results instead of popular search rankings?

Hakia provided the booth sweets. Our booth was such a hit because of this.Thanks Hakia!
