It's taken me a little while to get this post together, but last Saturday I went down to Tokyo Big Site for the 2008 Tokyo Toy Show. I had been hoping to see a lot of the new(er) designer plastic being displayed, but was disappointed in that there was very little to be seen.
Generally though, had I had a five year old with me, I think it would have been a blast for him / her, and a serious strain for any adults charged with their care and entertainment.
Having said that, I will go back, someday, when I have a five year old of my own. In the meantime, I have a small set of photos up on Flickr.
