Spark 2010 line up

Hey Gang,
Busy weekend so here's a quickie to update you on the Spark Model 2010 program. It's rather overwhelming but something for everyone. Both 1:43 and 1:18 collectors will find several that you won't be able to live without. Click on the link below to download the complete PDF file with images. It will take us a little time to get these all set up for the websites, but be assured that we are already plugging away at it. Enjoy the day, Go USA!!!

Greetings all

Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to Germany for Toy Fair, but here's a link courtesy of Tim V. with tons of great info from most of the top mfg. and what they displayed this year.
It's in German but easily translated.

And here's one I received from Bruce K.

Keep watching as the pictures change, I think you'll be surprised.

Last but not least, here's one from my west coast buddy Leo:

Hope you all have a great weekend!

I'm back in the saddle.....the last 3-4 weeks my main focus has been my mom's health and the business took a back seat. After a lengthy battle, she passed away this past week. She's in a better place now and at peace.

My heart felt thanks go out to all of you that sent your thoughts and prayers our way during these hard times. Leo out on the left coast, Tim down under, you guys are awesome! The constant emails and cards I received meant a lot. This proves my theory that even though business is our usual course of interaction, I have gained many friends over the years through the business. It's a beautiful thing!

OK, give me a day or two to get caught up on the sea of emails and we'll get back to biz.
Again, mega thanks to all of you!
