Thanks, Mary. People like you and the people at Educational Insights are a true ambassadors for toy and game inventors.

Kim Vandenbroucke

Great article! and I completely agree with Tim's comment above!

Jeremiah Balik

Mary you're MAGNIV -- thanks for another great article!

Richard Gill

Nicely done Mary and EI. Inventors are just as valuable as book authors and it is awesome to see a company in the US taking advantage of it. There are others including Out of the Box.....hoping it becomes a trend!!

David Katzner

Love this Mary. Over the 20+ years that I have been reviewing toys from companies big and small the greatest kick I get is finding that spark of ingenuity and brilliance tucked away in a little corner or booth, dwarfed by the big boys. Seeing their passion poured into their creation and meeting with a think-outside-the-box inventor is what makes this all worthwhile.

Tina Nelson

Reading your article got me thinking about additional marketing ideas to sell a game I invented (and on the market). Having never worked in the toy industry articles, like Partnering with Inventors, provide me with invaluable helpful hints. Thanks so much!

Dana Campagna Lanham

I received the EI catalog in the mail a few weeks before Toy Fair. I recognized the inventors and thought what great products and a terrific approach which features the products and their inventors with the players themselves, beautifully photographed and graphically different. Kudos, EI and the inventors we all love so much!
