2016 Nuremberg Toy Fair Overview

You never know what the weather holds for Toy Fair at the end of January in Nuremberg. Sometimes cold and snowy, sometime cool and sunny, but most often cloudy skies. While the weather was certainly cloudy and dreary, once inside the Nuremberg Messe (exhibit center halls,) it’s always bright and cheery! And, it’s large enough to be able to ramble for days without seeing the same thing twice!
