Chicago Toy and Game Fair Flash Giveaway


My kids look forward to the Chicago Toy & Game Fair every year. My oldest loves it the most. He loves to sit down and try all the new games. He is definitely the gamer of the family. This year is no different. Every time we drive downtown and they see Navy Pier they ask when we are going to the Game Fair again. I can’t believe it’s already next weekend. This month is flying by. Before I know it, it’ll be December 18th and I’ll be in the hospital having a baby!!

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!

Adventure Sandwich LIVE!
The imaginative folks behind the online series “Adventure Sandwich” welcome you to their “cardboard world.” And, yes, it’s as interesting as it sounds! Settle in for an hour of imaginative, live-action cartoon-style storytelling, interactive gameplay and original music on Sunday, November 22, at 3 p.m.

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.
