Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a gift bag. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

My son joined other kids in play with the newest Hasbro toys and products coming out for 2013. The event was held in Bryant Park Hotel in the Terrace Loft, which offered a great open space.

The kids were able to visit different stations and enjoy all the different toys within each station. Each station offered a variety of toys for different age ranges so all the kids could play and enjoy.

There was a face painting artist. Since my son is a fan of a fan of Spiderman, he choose to have a mini version of a spider painted on his hands.

We also took home a balloon Cheeky monkey. My son "help" the balloon artist make his monkey by holding sections while she put the monkey together. He loved it!

As you can see, we had a great morning at the Hasbro Playdate seeing (and playing with) the new toys.
