Part of ReedPOP’s NYCC Presents lineup, this audio/visual spectacular to be held on Thursday, October 6th is a time-hopping trip through the past that will revisit some of the greatest toys ever made…as well as looking at some of the greatest playthings currently on the market, and examining the hugely popular retro toy craze.
