Can you imagine winning a contest as the reporter for the Today Show? Flying to NYC to cover Toy Fair? Interviewing the head of Fisher-Price and Hasbro–and then appearing on the Today Show with Al and Natalie? That’s exactly what happened to Deidra Shore- a lovely 13 year old from Tennessee.
We meet in the green room this morning…talked about which toys she would demo. Which toys she really loved from toy fair–her favorite, the updated 50th anniversary edition of the Mega Play-Doh Fun Factory.
She did a great job with the remote control Millenium Falcon — which was a huge relief since my track record with flying things in the studio isn’t great. She handled not only the taped piece–but reading the teleprompter and the live interview like a pro! Congrats Deidra!!
