The PopCult Bookshelf
I know we’ve been carpet-bombing you with our coverage of Toy Fair 2016 here in PopCult (and to be honest, we’re not even halfway done yet), but today I wanted to point out few book projects that we encountered during our trip to New York. When you make a trip this big, you milk it as long as you can.
Children’s books and toys go hand-in-hand, but there was more than just kid’s books on display at Toy Fair. We’re just going to bring you some photos of the cool publishing endeavors we learned about. Some of them we’ve already posted video about, and some we will in the next few days. Some of them we just have the photos.
Over the next few days your PopCulteer plans to go nuts with the Toy Fair posts, with videos and photos coming your way like crazy. There may be as many as thirty Toy Fair posts over the next four days, so get ready for that. I’d like to get most of our Toy Fair video posted before the PopCult crew leaves for JoeLanta next week. You’ll read more about that tomorrow morning. For now, look at these bookish photos…
Carrot Saves Easter is a new plush toy/book combo, and you will see our video with Carrot’s creator this weekend. Learn more about Carrot HERE.
Another new plush/book combo that’s also a game is the Christmas-themed Noel Shuffle. You will also see our video for this fun new idea this weekend. Read about it HERE.
By day four of Toy Fair, your PopCulteer was running on fumes. and began to hallucinate that he was dancing with the Noel Shuffle Gingerbread men.
This weekend you will see a video that explains why and how United Healthcare wound up in the business of kid’s toys and books.
Gavin Lawler shows off The Irish Fairy Door and explains the concept.
These are The Tinkineers. We heard about them at the Playmonster booth (video coming this weekend)
The Tinkineers star in a graphic novel that comes with really cool Marbleocity toys.
This is a Marbleocity toy. Kids build it, and then watch it do its stuff. Read about it HERE.
A hilarious send-up of The Elf On a Shelf is The Mensch on a Bench. We interview its creator this weekend in PopCult.
Upcoming projects from The INVICTA Challenge. We told you about them HERE.
AZIAM Yoga Girlz also star in books. Check out our coverage HERE.
This image is just a tease. There will be video.
Sadlly, we ran out of time before we had a chance to go back and visit the Mudpuppy booth. However, you can find out more about their Andy Warhol products HERE.
