ChiTAGChicago Toy & Game Week is next week, and as all roads point to the annual Chicago Toy & Game Fair, taking place November 19 & 20 at Navy Pier.  ChiTAG has become a family tradition in which the kids can go hands-on with some of the hottest toys of the holiday season as toy & game makers put on a show at the largest non-hobby Toy & Game Fair that welcomes the public into the fold. As one of the 2016 Play Influencers, I'm pleased to announce a pre-ChiTAG twitter party on Wednesday, November 9, 2016! Brought to you by #ChiTAG (@ChiTAGWeek) and #30SecondMom (@30SecondMom), I'll be co-hosting (@TheRockFather) along with the Toy Queen, Keri Wilmot (@ToyQueen) and Alison Ray (@SoChicLife).

From 8-9pm Central Time, we'll be discussing:

  • What's new for ChiTAG this year
  • Why play is so important for children and families
  • The hottest toys for the 2016 holiday season

Click here to RSVP by joining 30 Second Mom (it takes just a second using Twitter to login).

Be there!
