You havenâ€™t seen a toy show until youâ€™ve seen this one. Six buildings! Over six hundred exhibitors! Exclusively toys and dolls and childrenâ€™s playthings on display everywhere! This is the show everyone always says they intend to visit, and now is the time to do just that. Collectors say the Chicago Toy Show really is the largest in the entire world. They are correct. Collectors say they find toys at this show that are never seen anywhere else. Correct again.
