During the weekend of November 4th and 5th the Jacob K Javitis Convention Center in New York City host the second annual Play Fair NY. Play Fair NY is an event that promotes play and fun attendees are encouraged to have hands on interaction with items in the various booths.  Each day had two sessions a morning and an afternoon. There were several different vendors present with their latest offerings for the Holiday season. The vendors included: LEGO, Hasbro, Spin Master, K'Nex, Toys R Us, Moose, Wowee, and Rubies to name a few.

The Empire Saber Guild was on-hand to entertain the crowd. There were Lightsaber demos and training sessions, various props on display, and photo ops with the various characters. 

New York City's finest Fire Fighters were on hand to talk about fire safety and interact with the crowd. 

The Junior Knicks and Rangers clubs were also in attendance giving demostrations and interacting with the kids. 

Fans were able to meet, interact, and get pictures of their favorite characters, play with the latest toys and games, and attend various panels through out the sessions. 

During the Saturday morning session of this event Maddie Rae recruited fans to participant in making the largest batch of Slime (6 tons to be exact). A representative from The Guiness Book of World Records was on hand to officiate the attempt. Their booth was very busy with fans pouring in to make slime and to be a part of history. The crowds then moved to the weighing booth to watch the slime being poured into the pool weighing station.  There was a lot of excitement for sure.
