My Toy Fair journey via Instagram

Toy Fair Traveller

In an effort to engage you all while I’m taking hundreds of photos on my DSLR and uploading them later, I decided to try Instagraming my trip along the way. You can always follow me on Instagram. Click below to see the journey.

I began my mission on a Bolt Bus from DC to NYC, we narrowly avoided the snow.

Had to stop by Grand Central Station and get a shot of the clock they borrowed from Saturday Night Live.

Ghostbusters Firehouse; you will be missed, Harold Ramis.

Had to stop by the Times Square Toys ‘R Us and visit Playmobil land!

The visit to Top of the Rock was kind of a bust due to the weather. Sunday was gorgeous, but I was there on Saturday.

Swung by the Lego Store at 30 Rock, and picked up a super famous Lego mini-fig. Did you know he was famous for being in the LEGO Movie? ZOMG!!

My tour of the LEGO booth. I thought since he was dressed for HOTH, it would be appropriate.

But then I found the new LEGO Artic Exploration set! Not as good as the Playmobil arctic set with the Inuit mom with a papoose, but they’re trying to keep up.

The mother land! I reached the Playmobil Toy Fair Booth and it was glorious. My favorite stop of the whole show. These Samurai dragon castles look fantastic.

After a long day at Toy Fair, we went to Dinosaur BBQ, and tried the Wango Tango sauce. That’ll clean out your sinuses.

My favorite place to grab a quick bite is Schnippers near Times Square.

Rats, not enough time to go into B&H Photo, the premiere camera shop in NYC. Maybe next time.

BONUS!
Here are a few shots that I took, but never put in my Instagram feed.

Times Square Toys R Us T Rex

I couldn’t resist posing by the infamous T Rex!

I’m one of the backers of this Kickstarter project Modarri Cars by Thoughtful toys. Check it out! I’m really looking forward to that car, however…
