2014 ASTRA Kid Reporter Videos


This year, TDmonthly sent four intrepid Kid Reporters into the belly of the ASTRA Marketplace to sniff out great toys and find out who made them and why. TDmonthly Kid Reporters Max Mendoza, Bali Bare, Alicia Laguna and Kinzer Ratajcyk brought their own unique child's-view perspective — and attention span — to America's foremost gathering of specialty toy vendors and retailers!



Watch as TDmonthly Kid Reporter Alicia grills the President of the United... I mean ASTRA President Kathleen McHugh about the importance of ASTRA for kids who love toys, while TDmonthly Kid Reporter Kinzer's mind seems to be, well, on the toys, of course!
