I am very grateful to the businesses, authors and companies that allowed me to raffle off some amazing items on my blog and my Facebook page this year. In this year alone I gave away a YoSushi gift card, tickets to Octonauts Live at the Mayo Center, a KidCash set, a box of Bakerly goodies, an App Mash-Up and Emoji Adventures book, a Pipsticks gift card, Chick-fil-A food cards, exclusive Lego sets from the Lego Roadshow, and our absolute favorite book, Diary of a Minecraft Zombie. Who knows what good things will come in 2017??

So hat's off to the new year! I already have some plans on the agenda. I WILL get to the Toy Fair in New York this year (a stomach virus and some snow kept me away last year), and we are planning a little adventure at The Other Tales Escape Room in Hawthorne (so stay tuned for THAT). I also look forward to telling you about a cool new program for schools called ActiveEDU. Please stick around.
