Essential Seven Toy Fair 2011 Disappointments

Toy Fair 2011 is now over. I always enjoy attending. I get to fly to New York, drink with friends, and see all of the toys coming out this year. I now know what to spend my money on. However, I also know what I don’t want to spend my money on. If there is one thing the collective fan media is good at, it’s bitching and moaning. I decided I needed to bitch a little and tell you the Essential Seven Toy Fair 2011 Disappointments:

Angry Birds at 2011 Toy Fair

Angry Birds plush and accessories
Mobile game favorite Angry Birds were all over Toy Fair… the plush is cute, but I really dig the Dodge balls. (They even have the little treads) I have a feeling the baseball sized beanies are going to show up on workdesks across the country. When you’re bored at work, stack up some binders and folders like a house of cards and start tossing the birds at them. These will be coming out soon from the Commonwealth Toy Company.

Mattel is also releasing a “board” game where you fling plastic birds at simple pig house set ups. Fun! Click below to see more pics.

Toy Fair pics are being uploaded

IMG_1763
I’m uploading photos from our trip the New York Toy Fair. We will be spending the next day or so shuffling them around (I shot wide-angle first then switched to macro, and Lando shot a lot too) so that photos of the same toy are next to each other, and we’ll label them the best that we can. There is also a video run through coming in a week or so.
