Have you ever had that dream where you walk into a toy store the size of an exhibition hall? The Chicago Toy & Game Fair brings that dream to life with its massive exhibit in Navy Pier’s Festival Hall!

Preview, play with, and purchase the hottest new toys from all around the world, meet some of the inventors who created them, and participate in some giant-sized games of Bananagrams, Pajaggle, and more. Join the Dark Side by dining with Vader’s 501st Legion at the popular Star Wars luncheon. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., boys and girls ages 6-18 can exhibit their original toys or games for the chance at Best in Show! Check out the live performances happening all day on Sunday from the Radio Disney Party Patrol, Lil’ Buds Theater, and other great theater companies!

Play dress-up at the Pony Royale Princess Party! Girls ages 3-8 will each receive a free princess pony with interchangeable manes and tails on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. And make sure you stop by the Holiday Heroes Toy Donation Booth on both days where Chicago Firefighters will be collecting toy donations and giving out firefighter hats!
