About the International Tokyo Toy Show:

"The Tokyo Toy Show is Japan’s most important fair for toys and has existed since 1962 – in various forms and with different names. The motto of the event is "EnterTOYment - toys make the world smile". Besides games, dolls and plush products, the product groups in Tokyo include seasonal and electronic toys. The event is divided into two parts: only trade visitors are admitted on the first two days, whereas end consumers are also welcome on the last two days. The Tokyo Toy Show in 2013 took place in the Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center from 13 to 16 June. Overall, 18.738 trade visitors and 140.573 end-consumers attended the fair." -Via World of Toys:
