It's Back! Chicago Toy & Game Fair 2012 (GIVEAWAY)

It's the 10th anniversary of the Chicago Toy & Game Fair and just like last year, I'm giving away a free weekend pass!!

We went last year and while we could only stay a short time, we had a ton of fun. This year we'll definitely be staying for a longer period of time.

ChiTAG happens the weekend of November 17 & 18 and will be held at Navy Pier. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids, but free admission for teachers, librarians, members of the military, Boy/Girl Scouts in uniform, children under 3 years of age. On Sunday, grandparents accompanied by kids admitted free of charge.

So how do you get my free weekend pass? Just comment. I'll draw a random winner on Tuesday. It's that simple. No need to tweet or send me cupcakes.

The games at ChiTAG and not just for the kids. I'm sure some adult-sized kids would have a great time.

So hurry and comment! Deadline is Tuesday at noon!!

Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
