First posted on the YourToyCom.com blog forum and community website serving the toys, games and childrens’ technology industries, on behalf of the Spielwarenmesse. Spielwarenmesse is the leading and largest International ToyFair in the world, held annually in Nuremberg, Germany in early February.
On Feb 6th, at the Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair 2011 Toy Business Forum Speech, I presented the topic of how toys and games are branching into the Social Media space. Earlier this week, we presented some of the App-ization of toys in two different formats: Toys to Apps and Apps to Toys products.
But there are even more products that I located walking the Spielwarenmesse Toy Fair 2011 Nurnberg trade show floor this week. Many products fall into the technology connected trend, also called e-Connected products.
