Last week we attend the Time To Play Spring Showcase. The toy industry event gives media outlets and taste makers a peek at what toys will be hot this season (and beyond).

Not only did we get a firsthand look at some really fun outdoor toys, such as the latest from Super Soaker and Razor Scooters, but we had a change to chat with Toy Expert Shannon Eis.

You may recognize Shannon from her memorable and hysterical segments on Late Night With David Letterman.

We were thrilled to get some time with Shannon as she shared some terrific insights on not only what toys will be the must-haves of the summer, but also some ideas and tips to engage kids and get them outside and play constructively.

So now that it’s spring, how do you like to get out and play?
