I'm probably going to stop taking pictures now that I have this one. How do I follow up a photo with Grumpy Cat? Everything now will just be a step backwards, and I'm not willing to go that route. So here you have it, the last picture of me ever featuring a famous internet cat and me making a sour face. Print it out and put it on your walls like it came from an issue of Tiger Beat.
So as you can see, Sharon and I made our way to Toy Fair in New York yesterday and I took a lot of pictures of cool stuff that you're gonna spend all your money on this year. We got back kinda late last night and I have to be at work soon, but I promise I'll do my best to upload all of our pictures tonight on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/TheToyViking. And all this week I'll highlight a different booth every day and showcase all the stuff I wanted to steal. Not that I would do that, but when you're surrounded by toys you can't buy yet you start to think bad thoughts. It's like going to comic con but forgetting your wallet.
There are a few pictures now on our Instagram, mostly of the new line of DC Comics Labbits from Frank Kozik x Kidrobot.
Toy Fair is a weird time. It's mainly set up for people from companies to come in, preview upcoming product, and place wholesale orders. So it's half carnival, with girls wearing blinky mustaches to attract attention to their booths (that happened, and we have something really cool involving said mustache and a cross bow coming soon), and half high-powered business meetings, with people in suits spending more money than most of us make in a year. Oh, and there was one sleepy kitty cat who people lined up in droves to take pictures with.
