The joy, wonder, and weirdness of Toy Fair 2013

Toy Fair isn’t what you would expect. It’s the largest toy trade show in the Western hemisphere — it had nearly 30,000 attendees last year — but there are no children. Hundreds of thousands of square feet are dedicated to the things children love, like action figures, dolls, model cars, board games, arts and crafts, sports equipment, and video games, but there’s a strict rule: no admittance to anyone under 18 years of age. In fact, you need to be in the industry to get in, but in case you couldn’t be there, we figured we’d bring you a taste.
