Visit Hotaling Imports at the Annual Toy Fair in New York
If you’re part of the toy industry, you have probably heard of the Toy Fair in New York. This event is produced by The Toy AssociationTM, Inc. – the same organization that hosts the Toy of the Year Awards. You can find Hotaling Imports at booth #3135 at this year’s event, where we’ll showcase our unique toy selection that sparks creativity and imagination in children.
The 115th North American International Toy Fair takes place from February 17th to February 20th. It is hosted in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. Every day from Saturday until Tuesday, visitors have the opportunity to browse exhibitor stands and explore some of their newest toy collections. To get into the event, you must be associated with the toy industry. It is not open to the public, because it’s exclusively geared toward retailers, distributors, importers, wholesalers, and buying groups. You must also be 18 or older to attend the Toy Fair.
What You Can Expect
The Toy Fair hosts more than 1,000 exhibitors which provide a selection of more than 150,000 different toys. There is a general market place where you can browse different selections. However, you can also use the floor plan to find the specific product zones you’re most interested in. After all, you may not be able to examine a total of 150,000 different toys present at this fair.
Attendees will be given a list of exhibitors, and a floor plan and interactive map is also available online at the Toy Fair website. You can even browse exhibitors by categories of products offered. This can be helpful if you sell a certain selection of toys or are looking for ideas for certain age categories.
Visit Us at Booth# 3135
Hotaling Imports will be present at this year’s Toy Fair. Our wholesale specialty toy collection includes a selection of quality brands, including Le Toy Van, Djeco, and Liontouch. As the exclusive U.S. distributor of Papo toys, we’ll also bring many toys from the new Papo collection for you to see. We can’t bring all the toys we have available – that would take up too much space. However, we’ll provide you with information on purchasing from us. You can view our extensive catalog on our website anytime, where we make it easy to order from us.
Whether you have ordered from us in the past or not, please feel free to stop by our booth #3135 to meet us and chat with us.

We pride ourselves on stocking only high-quality toys that encourage imaginative play and healthy childhood development.
