2014 ASTRA Marketplace & Academy Booths to Visit


The 2014 ASTRA Marketplace & Academy will take place this year from June 8-11th at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona. The annual ASTRA show is one of specialty toy retailers' favorite places to commune with other storeowners and learn about the best new specialty kids products.


This year, TDmonthly is excited to be working with four talented Kid Reporters, who will be scouting the floor of the ASTRA Marketplace for the year's most exciting, innovative and FUN toys! Kinzer, Bali, Max and Alicia will be sharing their unique kids' perspective to make purchasing toys your customers will really love easier than ever. Stay tuned to see which products they think are a must-have for kids this year!

Below, TDmonthly Magazine is happy to present our 2014 ASTRA booths to visit list, including product images and ordering specials for our readers. Mark down the companies that interest you ahead of time, so you know just who to visit at the show.
