One of the most exciting features of the Chicago Toy & Game Fair is the Young Inventor Challenge which offers kids ages 6-18 the opportunity to invent and present their own original toy or game concept in the same venue as some of the most successful inventors in the world.
There is nothing like the magic of watching a child unwrap a brand new toy. Besides strings of shiny bulbs or candles wrapped in holly, is there a more luminous holiday icon than a kids face when it lights up? The moment has been memorialized in movies like A Christmas Story (who can forget Ralphies face as he opened up his Red Rider b.b. gun?).
