Mark your calendars for the Chicago Toy and Game Fair

Mark your calendars for the Chicago Toy and Game Fair

We could all use a little bit more play in our lives, don't you think? I think that we adults need some play in our lives even more than our kiddos do!

On November 19-20, the whole family can take advantage of some good ol' fashioned playtime at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG). This event is the country's largest public fair of its kind. Toy and game enthusiasts (so that means your kids) can preview and play with the hottest new toys and games on the market and meet popular toy and game inventors.

I think that the real highlight of this event is the Young Inventor Challenge.  Students 18 and under are invited to submit original game and toy inventions by October 31. How cool is that? What a great opportunity for clever Chicago kiddos!  Check out the full details on the web site (the prizes are pretty cool!).

Other ChiTAG highlights include meet-and-greets with toy inventors and a Star Wars breakfast event. For full event details, visit

Fair hours are 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children. Children under three
are admitted free; Scouts in uniform, military, teachers and librarians are also admitted free of charge.
