Chicago Toy & Game Group Selects Laura Robinson to Host ChiTAG Fashion Show

The Chicago Toy & Game Group has announced that producer, actress, and game inventor, Laura Robinson, will join the upcoming Chicago Toy & Game Fair (ChiTAG) as the host of playCHIC, the innovative play-inspired fashion show. Robinson is connected to the toy and game industry as an inventor. First released in 1984, she co-created the best-selling board game Balderdash, a game of bluffing and trivia using nonsense terms. The categories contain real but unbelievable content about People, Words, Initials, Movies, and a new category, Laughable Laws. Players make up phony answers and leave it up to other players to vote on which answer is real, scoring points for guessing correctly. Robinson is currently in development to co-exec produce a prime time television version of Balderdash, for fall, 2015.

In addition to her appearance at playCHIC, Robinson will serve as a keynote speaker at the Toy & Game Inventor Conference (T&GCon), a forum for advocating, educating and bringing together people in the toy and game industry with unrivaled opportunities for private and confidential meetings, knowledge sharing, learning about new trends, pooling resources and generating new business.

For the third year, play will take center stage at playCHIC, an innovative runway show that combines fierce fashion with top toys during ChiTAG's Chicago Toy & Game Week. Pairing renowned haute couture designers with familiar toy and game brands to pioneer unexpected and creative designs, playCHIC fashions a one-of-a-kind runway of edgy, playful looks. The 2014 playCHIC fashion show will hit the catwalk on Thursday, November 20, 2014at Alhambra Palace Restaurant.
