Matthew Kitchens, the new owner of The Toy Store Little People in Quincy, just returned from the Toy Fest West in Las Vegas, the largest toy convention and tradeshow on the West Coast. He said that every toy vendor imaginable — from Mattel to Fisher Price to Melissa & Doug — was there showing off its newest products. He said he also spent time visiting with many entrepreneurial game developers from all over the country who brought the latest in family games to try out. Matthew said the one that really caught his attention was called Love Letter, a simple card game that involves bluffing, deduction and player elimination with a renaissance theme deck of cards. Other vendors and their products that caught his eye included Star Wars and its realistic light sabers; Nano Quad Copters that he said resemble bumble bees zipping around at high speeds; and K’NEX, a company that started out 20 years ago and has now become an educational innovator. They are introducing Thrill Ride, a set that allows kids to use their imagination to build their very own working roller coaster. These are just a few of the thousands of toys that are coming out and Matthew says many will be landing on his shelves this spring.
