Event Sponsorship, Inventor Interaction and Exciting Play Experiences Tops PlayMonster’s List of Activities at 2017 Chicago Toy & Game (ChiTAG) Fair!


BELOIT, Wis. (November 7, 2017) – PlayMonster is excited to once again participate in the fun and festive ChiTAG Fair at Navy Pier on Saturday and Sunday, November 18 – 19, 2017! The weekend’s activities include the Young Inventor Challenge and the PlayMonster’s booth featuring four inventors of PlayMonster games and toys for public “meet-and-greets” as well as multiple exciting play experiences for kids and families.

The Young Inventor Challenge takes place on Saturday (November 18) at Navy Pier in Chicago, where kids ages 6 – 18 will set up and display their previously-submitted toy and game inventions and ideas to the general public, media and industry professionals, hoping to win prizes in categories such as Most Marketable Concept, Most Creative Concept and Best Pitch Video or Commercial. PlayMonster is a sponsor of this event because it fosters imagination and innovation, inspiring children to explore and follow through on their ideas. Children also receive feedback from industry professionals, helping them to become better inventors and gearing them toward success!

All weekend long, PlayMonster’s fair booth will feature tons of fun for families! Kids can stop by to try out the new Super Spinner disc swing that will be set up and ready for play! In another area of the booth, numerous Automoblox wood cars will be available for kids to mix and match to create custom vehicles, and then race them down the giant wood ramp. Also set up will be an awesome Ultra Dash game obstacle race course! Kids can run and play, and try to beat their best time at hitting the targets, or race friends and siblings! PlayMonster will also have several of their products for sale at a special show discount price for anyone looking to shop.

When kids aren’t playing at PlayMonster’s booth, they can meet and talk with actual game and toy inventors. A schedule will be posted at the booth letting consumers know when they can stop by to see Marbleocity inventor Adam Hocherman, Super Spinner inventor Greg Cordray, Dictitious inventors Johanna Sherman and Lori Christopher, and Ultra Dash inventor Dan Klitsner.

If you’ll be in the Chicago area November 18 – 19, stop by Navy Pier for some fun and early holiday shopping! Tickets available at the fair, or purchase early at
