Get Excited for Toys and Games! (Plus the chance to win FREE passes!)

What’s that Blog Friends? It’s NOVEMBER already?

Time sure does fly around here…

I’m gearing up for my nerdiness and getting stoked for 2 of my favorite November events. PlayCHIC and ChiTAG And I’d LOVE it if you would join me at the fair.

Chrissy at the Fashion Show

If you remember from last year, I attended the  amazing PlayCHIC fashion show, in which fashion and toys were combined with one amazing night of joy with snacks. And cocktails. And fun.

And I even pretended that I was a top fashion maven. Or something like that.

Word Winder

Word Winder and Chicago designer Gibeon Tolbert worked together to create this dress and tie combo at the 2012 PlayCHIC show. This was my favorite. Obviously.

 

This year, the event is from 7-10 pm on Thursday, November 21 at the River East Art Center in Chicago. And I can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with this year! If you end up attending as well, look for me and say hi!

Of course, this super fun event is all part of the week leading up to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair, where a variety of game designers, companies and more gather to show off the hottest toys of the season. Last year, I had a BLAST.

Giant Bananagrams

I played with Banagrams…

Settlers of Catan Tournament

I played in a fancy tournament.

Quirky Chrissy meets R2D2!

I even met R2D2!

But toys and games aren’t fun alone! So I’m inviting you to attend this fabulous event with me, the weekend of November 23 & 24 at Navy Pier. ChiTAG is celebrating the 11th anniversary of this interactive fair, where you and your kiddos can enjoy play, buy games, participate in Guiness World Records and more!

Chicago Toy & Game Fair

 

You can purchase tickets for this event at the door with this $2.00 off coupon, but you can also try your luck at winning one of the 3 weekend family passes that I’ll be giving away this month! All you have to do to enter? Leave a comment below telling me why you think the Chicago Toy and Game Fair is going to be AWESOME this year. Or why you want to go. Or why you think I’m awesome. I’m pretty open as long as the comment is happy and positive and mentions toys or games. Because this is a fun event!

Silly Chrissy forgot to add…I’ll be giving away 1 weekend family pass to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair every Friday from now until the event. Good luck.

I’ll be attending the fair on both Saturday and Sunday–with Sunday being a date that I’ve set up with some of the children in my little world. And if you see me? PLEASE say hi!

What are you excited about this month?!

*Note: I was not paid to say nice things, but I was offered the invitation to attend both of the events mentioned this month. That doesn’t make me like them any more. Well, maybe a little. But I always have a good time. And you will too.

  1. I think you’re awesome! (no grammar corrections)

  2. JANICE HALVERSON…WRITE TO HER AND GIVE INFO…SHE THINKS THIS IS CUTE!!

  3. I can tell you what I’m NOT looking forward to! Movember. Every guy I know is growing a horrid 1970s Porn ‘Stache and it drives me crazy. Yes, I know, it’s for charity. But they look so silly.

  4. Rick Jones says:

    I want to go because my littles will love it…so will their da! I also want to go because QUIRKY CHRISSY IS HUGE IN SCOTLAND. I love her and want her autograph.

  5. They need to have one of those here!!! I would so go but Chicago is a little far for me.

  6. Yolanda Flores says:

    My kids are grown so I have not shopped for toys in a long time! My son has a Godchild now and I look forward to spoiling him with gifts but have no idea what toys to buy — what’s in? What’s not? I would very much like to check it out for myself! Thanks for the chance.

  7. I think this would be great to take my 3 year old son to – he wants EVERY toy he sees it seems like. Mostly he is into Legos but he gets so excited over so many toys that he would be in heaven.
