Weekly Wrap Up - Toy Fair 2017
21 Feb 2017
Did any of you guys enjoy a long weekend? We sure did. While most Spheorites indulged in 3+ hour ski traffic or opted outside during this unseasonably warm weather, others of us ventured out to Hell. Hell's Kitchen, that is, to attend this year's Toy Fair in NYC.
While we can't share any photos or detail what exactly we did or the fabulous food we ate, we can assure you attendees enjoyed a preview our 2017 product line.
And we hope you will too, in good time.
For now, patience kiddies—good things come to those who wait. Or visit Hell(’s Kitchen).
A Day In The Life: The lonely Dum-Dums residing in our candy drawer.
Q. Oh, hello. Who are you?
A. Read the label, Dum-Dum(s).
Q. Someone has a case of the Tuesdays. What do you do at Sphero everyday?
A. We sit here in this drawer, hoping for the day when we’re picked by anyone who has a desperate hankering for sweets and there’s nothing else left. It’s been 782 days, but we remain optimistic.
Q. That’s admirable. What advice can you impart for others looking to get into the same thing?
A. Probably place yourself in glass jars on bank tellers’ or doctors’ countertops—somewhere where children frequent with their parents and there isn’t too much competition.
Q. A glass case of emotions, right there. What are you working on today?
A. Right now we’re working on not being buried by the new amount of candy that Clayton stocks the drawer with every Tuesday.
Q. So a “Case of the Tuesdays” is a real thing for you. What do you love most about being at Sphero?
A. We love that we’ve survived three different moves to three different buildings so far. Never know where life will take you, you know?
Q. Do you have a favorite bot of ours?
A. It’s hard to choose when you’ve seen them all grow up so fast.
Q. What do you like to do outside of Sphero?
A. We enjoy anywhere that is not in a trash can.
Q. What do you love about living in Colorado?
A. The mild and arid climate is great for extending our shelf life.
Q. Do you have a favorite spot you like to frequent?
A. Fans’ appetites. We hear it’s warm in there.
Q. Any fun facts you care to share about yourselves?
A. Four things: We were born in 1924, are free or major allergens, kosher approved and always here.
