Great post, thanks. I would have to agree, as well. FAO Schwartz is a little sad these days. It feels like it is running on vapors or glory past.

Really? A child used the word "branding" and called stuffed animals "plush"?

Debbie Labinger

Great post! Kayla is a very observant and smart little girl. I'm sure she'll continue to grow into an amazing writer/reviewer for many years to come.

Kayla knows the lingo because her mom is an industry veteran.

Steve Markey

When my kids were 4 or 5 years old, before touching any of my samples, they would always ask if it was production or a prototype, and before opening a box they would ask if it was comp packaging.
Toy industry kids know the lingo, as Richard said.
