We had a lot of fun at the 10th Annual Chicago Toy and Game Fair this year. You're really never too old to get excited about the newest toys and games on the market during the holiday season.

A stack of cups might not sound like the hottest toy on the market but Speed Stacks had kids at ChiTAG mesmerized. Kids can play with the cups at home, against their friends or even compete nationally. You can buy a Speed Stacks kit in a variety of colors and get a timer or mat to make things more competitive.
The Speed Stacks website also has a Kid's Corner with tips for improving times and a calendar of upcoming events.
