January and February are when the professional Toy Fair season starts. Toy companies show off new products to buyers (toy stores), its a time for Razzmatazz, Show Biz and Excitement!
Like Spring Training for baseball, the Toy Fairs are when every toy company has hope that their new toy will be the Next Big Thing!
First up is the Nuremberg, Germany Toy Fair: 27 Jan-2 Feb. This is the biggest show for LEGO, as their headquarters are in Europe.
