February was certainly BUSY. Toy Fair was the focus, as it is at that time every year, and the Child's Play team was out in force, roaming the aisles and supporting clients that were exhibiting at the show. Kidscreen, just the week before, was filled with positive meetings. This was a particularly hectic two weeks for Child's Play president, Stephanie Azzarone. She took part in a panel on marketing at iKids the day after Kidscreen and the following week made a presentation on what moms look for when buying kids' apps at the Digital Kids Conference. That week ended with the opportunity to speak to a group of young women at the annual Stern Undergraduate Women in Business Conference at New York University.


And March is...catch up time for all of us!
