Did you know that Chicago is a major center for toy and game invention? It's where Tickle Me Elmo was invented. You can be one of the first to see new toys created in Chicago, and toys from all over the world at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair on November 17 & 18 at Navy Pier. The fair is open to the public, so whether you're a kid or a kid at heart, you shouldn't miss it - it's like Xmas come early. Learn more at www.chitagfair.com.
Sidebar: I will be taking my college students on a tour of Lund & Company, a major Chicago toy and game invention company. Excited.
