MY STUFFIE @ NYC Toy Fair 2011

As I remarked 2 years ago, NYC Toy Fair is filled with many, many suits but also with many innovators, inventors, and passionate moms and dads pouring themselves into their product trying hard to live the entrepreneurial dream.  No matter how big OWTK gets and what special invitations I receive […]
