Craving NYC: Toy Wishes Holiday Preview

The latest installment of the Crave video series.

I'm practical, no-nonsense, and down-to-earth, despite what other people who write for this blog may tell you. So when our local CNET TV honcho, Rich DeMuro, told me I might want to check out the Holiday Preview event held by trade magazine Toy Wishes earlier this week, I kind of rolled my eyes. I'm not really one for kid stuff. And indeed, the entertainment tie-ins and crazy web-enabled light-up flashing gadgets are kind of insane. I'm still not understanding the appeal of a Darth Vader action figure that morphs into the Death Star.

But you kind of have to suck it up, embrace your inner eight-year-old, and try to ignore the fact that the proliferation of Wi-Fi-enabled toys at such an event is going to make you feel really, really old.
