I am so pumped up about attending the 2011 Chicago Toy and Game Fair
(i.e. CHITAG)! My family had an absolute blast last year
. We found tons of games and toys that the kids not only liked but actually LOVED. 2010's Christmas morning found my children opening Catan's Settlers of America, Munchkin, a Razor Rip Rider 360 and Razor spark scooter, Strawberry Shortcake's remote control car, and Top Trumps (to name a FEW), all of which were discovered at CHITAG. So I am definitely attending with a pen and paper and camera (and maybe even a few bags in case we find something we just HAVE to have that day) to keep track of the Must Have items of this year.
CHITAG also hosts a truly unique contest for children, too. It's called the Young Inventor's Challenge
. If you have a kid who is into creating new games and toys, or just has a wild imagination, why not enter him/her in the Challenge and see if one of their crazy ideas is the next Big Thing in the Toy and Game world? Did you know that if your child enters to participate in the Young Inventor's Challenge
, your entire
immediate family can enter the fair for free? It's such a cool way to inspire your children to think outside the box!
Excited to attend? Wish that you could go, and wish that you could go for FREE?
