Pomona Toy Show 2006 Video Roundup

Smaller Manufacturers Get To Be Bigger Fish


The compact size of the Western States Toy and Hobby Show, held annually in Pomona, Calif., allows smaller manufacturers to shine without being overwhelmed by the shadows of the Big Boys. TDmonthly Magazine sent its video department to the show, where we found lots of great new games, arts and crafts and outdoor toys by single-product manufacturers, as well as complete lines of new products from the specialty vendors that toy stores love.

These are a few of the videos. More will be added every few days. (Also, be sure to check out videos from the 2006 Toy Fair in New York by clicking here.)

PLEASE NOTE: Each video takes from 2 to 10 minutes to load the first time.
