Happy Force Friday!!!

The Toy Insider was on TV this morning with the official break of Star Wars toys. Of course we included Thinkway...see link below

Now that the embargo is over, it is important you send us samples of your key Star Wars drivers (we are currently well stocked on Minions). We had to get this sample from TRU, not you guys which we really can not do on an ongoing basis. So please send us samples so we don't miss future opportunities to include Thinkway

Hope you enjoy the segment above

Have a great Force Friday
