Chicago Toy and Game Fair Flash Giveaway


Last week I gave you a chance to win a weekend family pass to the Chicago Toy & Game Fair. I have one more chance here on my blog for you to win passes to the fair. Since the fair is this weekend, I only have this giveaway open until Wednesday night. Good luck!

Here’s what you’ll be seeing at CHITAG this year:


Inventor Meet and Greets
Ever wanted to meet the inventor of BopIt? Operation? Jenga? Meccano Meccanoid? Shopkins? You can say “hello” and get inside knowledge from all – they’ll be in booths at the Fair. Also meet upcoming inventors and try their products out. You’ll be able to say you knew them before they were hot!

The imaginative folks behind the online series “Adventure Sandwich” welcome you to their “cardboard world.” And, yes, it’s as interesting as it sounds!

Ben’s Bubble Show
Ben, a frequent Navy Pier entertainer, uses a few simple tools and his bare hands to make ginormous soap-bubble sculptures. He peppers his performance with humor and audience interaction, and is a big hit with kids. The show takes place throughout the duration of the Fair.

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
