Just got back from setting up our toy segment for the Today Show tomorrow morning. Rockefeller Center was packed with all the people waiting for the tree lighting–an event that seems to get bigger and bigger every year. We have so many great toys to talk about–and only about 4 minutes to cover just a small portion of our Platinum List (complete list is on our site at www.toyportfolio.com). As hard as this season has been because of the lead/safety issues, it’s always fun to see our award winners ready for tv the night before. While we don’t make any of these toys or sell them, after a year of searching for the “best”, we do get a certain sense of pride about them. The studio was packed with cooking segment people, holiday table decoration people, producers, art directors and the amazing crew that puts it all together. It’s a dance of boxes, props and people — that happens every afternoon like clockwork!
