It was sweet indeed.

Yes, the Big Toy Book’s fifth annual Sweet Suite event did not disappoint, treating bloggers to a sweetastic time on July 17, at the chic Location 05 in New York City, during the first ever Blogger Bash.

If you are not familiar with Sweet Suite and you are wondering what exactly it is — Sweet Suite is an event hosted by Laurie Schacht (Toy Insider, The Big Toy Book), Joey Fortman (Real Mom Media), and Charlene DeLoach (Charlene Chronicles) that offers top digital influencers and bloggers nationwide a chance to meet face-to-face with the biggest companies in the toy industry during “the biggest night of play.”

The party features the upcoming holiday season’s hottest toys and gives media, bloggers, and brands time to mingle, network, and of course, play.

This year’s Sweet Suite sponsors showed off their hot new items such as McFarlane Toys’ Walking Dead construction line, Activision’s brand new Skylanders Trap Team, LeapFrog’s LeapBand, new never-before-seen Disney Infinity figures and brand new kids’ tablets from VTech and Techno Source.

While bloggers made their way through the maze of booths and toys, they indulged in treats from Bazooka, martinis from Lemonhead, and wine from Zipz Premier Wine.

Yes… I mentioned there were a TON OF TOYS…

And at the end of the night, bloggers had the chance to unwind and enjoy a party hosted by Angry Birds Stella. A perfect, pink ending to the day.
