Playtime is back! Originally launched in 1959, Pin Play™ was a staple of every playroom and toy chest for over 40 years.

This panel will premiere the newest Pin Mates and offer a look into the dangers of app-based toys as well as why open-ended creative play is needed to stimulate young imaginations. Hosted by Scott Neitlich (Masters of the Universe Classics, METALS Nano) and Adam Pawlus (Galactic Hunter, 16bit.com), the panel features creative director Griffin Maghari and Barbara Shaw Neitlich (LCSW, a national expert on child play therapy). Panel attendees will receive a free blind box Pin Mate™.

Panel: Living in a Post-Toys ‘R’ Us World – Navigating the Future of Toy Retail
Time:                     7:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Location:              Room 8

The bankruptcy and liquidation of “the world’s biggest toy store,” Toys ‘R’ Us, earlier this year has sent shockwaves through the toy industry. Many toys and smaller toy companies are left without a brick-and-mortar store presence. Is there a retailer that could rise to take the place of the fallen retail giant? Do you truly need a retail presence to launch a toy line? Panelists will take the temperature of the toy and collectibles industry and find the light in the darkness. They include Steven Anne (category manager, toys/licensing at Walgreens), Richard Gottlieb (principal and founder, Global Toy Group), and Jason Labowitz (co-founder, Entertainment Earth, and BifBangPow!). Moderated by Daniel Pickett (founder, Action Figure Insider).
