#SweetSuite13 from The Big Toy Book – The Toy Event of the Year

SweetSuiteLogoEventBrite-copy

One of my favorite events to attend each year has got to be The Big Toy Book Sweet Suite. I recently attended the #SweetSuite13 in Chicago and it was the best planned out event that they have had so far.

They had two levels where sponsors had tables spread out with the products they have available. There was a ton of space There everyone could connect and talk to the sponsors. There were no time limits. There were no long lines. You could play with the toys, network with sponsors and other bloggers. There were even seats to sit down when we needed to rest for a bit. The space was perfect.

Another reason that I love attending this event is because I love toys. My kids love toys. In fact, I started a toy blog called The Toy Bloggers a few years ago with my nephew because my entire family loves toys. I really like being able to bring something home for them that fits their personalities and likes.

Sharis Berries SweetSuite13

They also had great drinks (Keurig Brew Over Ice) and great sweets (Shari’s Berries). That is exactly what a Sweet Suite should be like, right?

THE SWAG

SweetSuite13 Swag

Just look at it! Everything pictured above arrived within days of the event.

What a brilliant idea it was to send the swag home. We didn’t have to carry anything on a plane or decide to leave some things behind because there wasn’t enough room. And when the swag arrived, the kids were just thrilled. They are still playing with everything a few weeks later.

Hands down, one of our favorite products has to be the Neat-Oh!® The Picnic Lunch Box™ & Placemat Penny Pig. Want to see how cool it is? Check out the video below:

Our other fave was the RoseArt Magic Fun Dough. All six kids at my house (my three children and their three cousins) loved playing with the Magic Fun Dough. You can shape it and add tons of tattoos. Here is a brief video on how it works:

Also, the Kidz Bop CD might just be about worn out. We have listened to it multiple times daily.

THANKS TO THE FABULOUS HOSTS
