The Creative Factor returns to the North American International Toy Fair in New York City for its 14th consecutive year, hosted by Brett Klisch of Peru Meridian Studios and the Toy Industry Association.

This year, The Creative Factor welcomes back industry experts such as Richard Levy, co-writer of the Toy and Game Inventors Handbook for an exciting look into what helped him create his illustrious career. The event will once again host a panel of companies who have had successfully funded campaigns on Kickstarter to start their toy companies.

Robin Raskin, who is coming straight from her successful Living in Digital Times event at the Consumer Electronics Show, will host “Five Trends (Some Good, Some Not) in Kids Tech Toys.”

Blake Wright, Writer of Toys That Time Forgot will be on hand to give some behind the scenes stories and pictures that didn’t make it into his cult hit book.

Attendees can also join Eric Belich of Greenberg Traurig LLP, who will discuss how to prepare a patent submission for review.

The Creative Factor will be located in Hall 1C at booth 5378 at the Jacob Javits Center. Click here for the full schedule, or contact Brett Klisch at for further information.
