REMINDER: Sign Up to Participate in 'CF@TF Inventor Day'

January 24, 2020 | Looking for the next great toy or game idea? Toy manufacturers are encouraged to participate in Creative Factor’s CF@TF Inventor Day to hear product pitches from pre-selected inventors and designers during Toy Fair New York.

Held Friday, February 21, the day before the show opens, CF@TF Inventor Day presents inventors and designers with the unique opportunity to sit down with, pitch, and demo their products and ideas to toy companies and inventor relations departments.

“These conversations not only provide designers and inventors with critical feedback from the best in the business but can also lead to further discussions and partnerships to bring their toys and games concepts to life in the future,” said Marian Bossard, executive vice president of global market events at The Toy Association. “We’re excited for the second annual CF@TF Inventor Day to kick off in less than a month!”

CF@TF Inventor Day is part of the Creative Factor educational programming at Toy Fair New York, which includes roundtables, presentations, workshops and panels aimed at supporting and fostering the growth within the global toy inventor and designer community. Pitches will take place on Friday.

Toy Association manufacturer members and other Toy Fair exhibitors interested in participating should notify Brett Klisch (Creative Factor’s co-founder and creative director at Peru Meridian Studios) or The Toy Association’s Madeline Raynor by February 13, 2020. Inventors and designers have been preselected by The Creative Factor advisory board, led by Brett Klisch, Robin Raskin of Living in Digital Times, Billy Langsworthy of Mojo Nation, and Matt Nuccio of Design Edge.

Toy Fair New York will take place Saturday, February 22, to Tuesday, February 25, 2020. Learn more at
