“We are not mere creators of trinkets and insignificant baubles and playthings.

We are the toymakers, the shamans, the wizards, the blacksmiths, the court jesters and sometimes even the town fool, and what we do –

the toys that we create, contribute to the ever-evolving ever-advancing forward motion of the civilized world.” –Bruce Lund

“This event makes me fall in love with the Toy & Game Industry each year!” - Megan Hinterman Kanous, Publisher Services, Inc.
