NEW YORK and TORONTO, March 22, 2010 – Fans 10 and under attending Toronto Comic Con, March 26-28, 2010, at the Direct Energy Centre will receive a free Gogos Crazy Bones toy, courtesy of Toronto-based Irwin Toy. The popular items will be distributed, while supplies last, at the Registration area upon arrival.
Gogos Crazy Bones are a collectable, mini game toy sensation. They are small, colorful figures whose gaming origins date back to Ancient Greece, where children played by bouncing and throwing knuckle bones. These more refined, plastic characters are available in the hundreds, each one having a unique face and name.
Gogos Crazy Bones was named the 2009 British Toy and Hobby Association (BTHA) Collectable Toy of the Year. The characters have recently been hugely popular in Europe and Australia and were first a big hit in the U.S. more than a decade ago, when 31.5 million packages were sold from 1998-2000.
"Having an international sensation like Gogos Crazy Bones available free to kids is a great bonus for Toronto Comic Con attendees," said Gareb Shamus, Wizard Entertainment CEO. "It's particularly gratifying to be partnering with Irwin Toy, which in addition to being based in Toronto, has been a leader in the industry for more than 80 years."
"We are pleased to be providing free Gogos Crazy Bones right in our backyard at Toronto Comic Con,” said Peter Irwin, Irwin Toys. “It is extremely special for Irwin Toys to participate in the inaugural show here, since Gareb has been a family friend for as long as my father and I can remember."
|Toronto Comic Con runs from March 26-28, 2010 at the Direct Energy Centre. This major pop-culture convention brings together fans of comics, toys, collectibles and offers a chance to see actors, writers, artists that each industry has to offer. |
