I thought that we will not make it for the last day of the Toy Expo Philippines, all of us at home were sick because of that pandecoco we bought in a nearby bakery here in the village, because we got tummy sick, we decided not to go out on a Sunday and planned to stay at home, but then my son Ashton reminded us that he still wants to go to the Toy Expo, he knows that it’s the last day. He cried because we promised that we will take him to the Toy Expo, after some debate at home, we finally decided to go out.
Me and my wife agreed that we can visit the toy event for 1-2 hours and then go back after we check out the booths, the games and shop for toys. We’re still sick that day, but we didn’t noticed our body’s limitation because of the tummy flu, thanks to those toys and giant set up of toy characters around the big hall of SMX for distracting us and enjoy the day of toys.
I’m glad that the entrance is free! I can tell that the Toy Expo’s 2nd run is a lot more better than the 1st last 2012. There are lots of games and activities for kids, discounted toy items, toy exhibits, new toy releases, mascot meet and greet and lots of freebies when you purchase a toy.
