Addicting Games and Toys

Just in time for the holidays, you can discover the top trends and addictions in toys and games at the 12th Annual Chicago Toy & Game Fair, a two-day, fun-filled celebration where you can bust your love for toys and games and no one will even make fun of you! (We see those Star Wars figurines sitting in your office window. We don’t judge.)

Starting on Saturday, November 22, the weekend kicks off holiday fun with contests, live stage entertainment, interactive exhibits, tournaments, and so much more while you join in on the fun of the ChiTAG fair, the global toy and game hub for consumers, inventors, trade, and media.

PSSST: Scouts in uniform and educators get into the fair for FREE!

You also have the opportunity to meet the inventors of some of your favorite games,including Nick Grisolia and Pete Greenley the inventors of Boomer, Zoomer and Zuppies, Laura Robinson the creator of Balderdash, Dan Klitsner the inventor of Bop It and Simon Swipe, Tom Quinn the inventor of Game of Things, and many, many
more! (Seriously? I’m almost peeing my pants because HELLOOO! BALDERDASH AND BOP IT! My kid will die when I tell her she gets to meet the inventors of her Boomer, too!)

Also, get this, the first 1,000 attendees through the doors on Saturday, November 22, will receive a free copy of the acclaimed book, About Jenga, by author and Jenga creator Leslie  Scott. Leslie Scott will be attending the Fair and autographing copies of her  book during the Fair.

    one of my favorite toys growing up was a stuffed no name long legged and armed monkey I called George, lol but he was my buddy too bad I went through many of George’s as he sure didn’t handle the rough and tough playing but luckily mom always ran to get me another one oh great memories.
