The International Tokyo Toy Show 2009 is coming up in just a couple weeks.
The show, held at the Big Sight Convention Center, draws large crowds from all over Japan, Asia, the US, and Europe.
Unlike many other shows, admission is free to the general public, and sales on the show floor are not only allowed, they're encouraged.
It will be quite interesting to see which manufacturers have weathered the economic storm and are still in the game, and which have gone under.
It will also be a great chance to get an early look at any new robot products planned for the upcoming holiday gift buying season.
