WTHRA Show 2006 Video Roundup

Smaller Manufacturers Get To Be Bigger Fish

TDmonthly Magazine sent its Video Crew to the Western States Toy and Hobby Retailers Association show, held annually in Pomona, Calif. We asked exhibitors to show us their best toy ... and how it works. So if you didn't make the show — or if you didn't have a chance to talk to everyone — now you can see what exhibitors predicted will be their biggest hits for 2006.

Manufacturers: Find out how a TDmonthly Video attracts buyers.

Videography by Alison Marek. Edited by Mark Zaslove and Alison Marek. Sound by Alex Sormaz.
