Product Suggestions Invited for Upcoming Videos on Summer
Travel, Back to School and More
To better accommodate summer production deadlines, the calendar
editorial opportunities has shifted slightly. TIA members
that are interested in submitting product
recommendations for future opportunities in print, online or
video coverage are requested to note the revised product nomination due
dates as shown on the chart below and online.
Ideas Due to
| July 7
||Toys and games for indoors and out that are easy for
families to take on the go
||Camp Care Packages
||Toys, games and activities that mom and dad can send to
kids to play with at camp and store in their bunks (including journals,
card games, scrapbooking kits, etc).
||Toys that use real and pretend food to role play or
create tasty treats in either indoor or outdoor kitchens.
||Back to School
||Educational toys and fun activities to keep kids of all
ages stimulated during the summer and ready for back to school.
||Tech Toys – Just like Mom and Dad Have
||Kids love to emulate mom and dad – and want toys
to play with just like their parents have. Instead of letting kids use
the new iPad or iPhone we are looking for kids versions of today’s
adult tech toys (cameras, lap tops, cell phones, etc).
||Super for Sleepovers
||Toys, games and activities (e.g., Mad Libs, arts and
crafts, interactive games, etc.) that are super for children’s
sleepovers, birthday parties, or other playdates.
