ChiTAG, National Lekotek Partner for Special Needs Families

The Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG) announced a partnership with The National Lekotek Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting play for children of all abilities. This year, ChiTAG will open its doors one hour earlier for the Lekotek Super Power Sensory Hour. These families will be admitted to the fair for free, and will have the unique opportunity to touch, feel, and experience before the fair opens to the general public.

Now celebrating its 14th year, ChiTAG takes place November 19 and 20, 2016, (the weekend before Thanksgiving) at Navy Pier in Chicago. ChiTAG is the largest toy and game fair in the U.S. that is open to the public. The annual fall event brings together consumers, families, inventors, manufacturers, retailers, educators, hobbyists, bloggers, and the media to play, celebrate, discover, support, and promote the creation of toys and games.
