Toys on the Hudson offers Holiday Shopping Alternative

New Jersey’s Family Toy Show Held Thanksgiving Weekend


Jersey City, NJ (November 7, 2012) – Toys on the Hudson is pleased to announce the tri-state area’s first family-focused toy fair. Developed as a shopping alternative to Black Friday, Toys on the Hudson offers families and collectors an opportunity to discover unique gifts, meet celebrities and enjoy photo opportunities in more than 18,000 square feet of floor space.  


Featured will be over 100 tables of vintage and current hard-to-find toys, comics and collectibles covering unique gift ideas for lovers of movie memorabilia, DVDs, Disney, anime, small antiques, action figures, tin, sports & non-sports, Barbie, original art and classic monster collectibles.


“We’re excited to offer a fun, alternative family activity during the busy post-Thanksgiving weekend,” said Phil DeMario, co-promoter of Toys on the Hudson. “This is a great event for both families and seasoned collectors who are looking for a different shopping experience and unique gift after they’ve fought the mall crowds.”


Many celebrities will be on hand including Steve Savino from the Toy Hunter TV series with visits by Jordan Hembrough, The “Pizza Boss” TV Pizza Tossing sensation Michael Testa, The Brady Bunch’s Geri Reischl, A Christmas Story’s Ian Patrella and many more movie and TV celebrities. Toys on the Hudson will also offer great photo opportunities for families and fans with the Batmobile, the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin and Star Wars costumed characters.  


“Toys on the Hudson is the perfect place to shop for the comic collector on your holiday list, as the entire Grand Ballroom is transformed into a Comic Collectors dream with over 50 tables of vintage and collectible comics, artists, authors and related merchandise,” said Mike Spino, co-promoter of Toys on the Hudson.


There will be a mix of vintage and new toys at show.  “We’re excited to bring our newest Captain Action toys and collectibles to Toys on the Hudson for this exciting weekend,” said retropreneur Ed Catto, co-founder of Captain Action Enterprises.


“Toys on the Hudson might be a great way to sell your own treasures, too. Attendees can bring a toy or collectible and have it appraised by one of the many on site appraisers,” added Phil DeMario.


For the “serious-must-have-first” collector, the show opens Black Friday Evening with a Preview Night for anyone who wants a chance to shop while the dealers put the finishing touches to their booths.


The 3 day event starts on Black Friday, November 23, 2012 at 5:00 pm and continues all weekend. The event is held at the Westin Newport Hotel, on the banks of the Hudson River, adjacent to Newport Mall, 495 Washington Blvd Jersey City, N.J.  The hotel is accessible from PATH, NYC and all NJ public transit. Parking is adjacent to hotel and is validated by select local restaurants.  More detailed information can be found on Toys on the Hudson facebook page or at  www.toysonthehudson.com  .

What about Night Life?

Will the Comics guests draw something for me?

  • You’ll have to ask them. Most will do a sketch for you for a nominal fee. We, “Toys On The Hudson”, give them the opportunity to conduct business as they see fit. 

How do I have my picture taken with the BATMOBILE?  

  •  Plans are to have the BATMOBILE parked directly in front of the hotel. You can make arrangements, on site, with Tony the owner. We will have a photographer on site with all the necessary equipment to process a glossy immediately for you.

 Will there be a Professional Photographer on site? 

  • Yes, we are in the process of making arrangements for you to have a professional photo taken, with any one at the show, for a very reasonable cost. Also, with an immediate processed photo, should you want to get it autographed. 

Can I take pictures?

  • Sure knock yourself out but be sure to ask first. Many of our Dealer’s don’t like to have people take pictures of them or their set ups and some of our guests may charge for pictures. Basically, the answer is, Ask First! Taking pictures of one of our guests or dealers may cause a problem and could result in you asked to leave the show if you continue. These same rules apply to video and phone cameras.

Can I conduct an interview at the show?

 How can I order tickets?

  •  Check out our Tickets Page on the web site!

Can I buy tickets at the door, or do I have to buy them in advance?

  • Yes, available at the door.

What is the deadline for ordering advanced tickets?

  • Generally, the tickets will stop being sold online one week before the show.

I ordered my tickets a month ago, but still have not gotten them in the mail!

  • No tickets are actually mailed to you. You should have gotten a receipt from when you ordered. You print that confirmation out, bring the original (not a copy) with you to the show along with your ID, and they’ll take care of everything there!

Can I re-enter the show if I leave?

  • You can as long as your hand stamp and ticket coincides with the correct day you paid for.

 What’s the difference between buying the tickets in advance and buying them at the door?

  • The line to check in with your advanced purchased ticket is usually shorter than waiting in line to buy a ticket.

I want to set up a table and sell at the show, who do I contact?

Sure, contact Phil @ toysonthehudson@aol.com or call him 973-726-9897. There is also info on the web site. Check the Dealer Information page and select your tables by number.

  • Sure, contact Phil @ toysonthehudson@aol.com or call him 973-726-9897.

Are bags and backpacks permitted into the show?

  • Yes they are. We do ask that you use common sense when toting them around, as some backpacks are large, bulky and unwieldy and can block aisles or knock into things when you turn around.
  •  Also, bags may be subject to search, so be sure you don’t have anything in there that you shouldn’t!
  • At the After Party they may be subject to checking. No outside food or beverage is allowed.

Can I bring a pet to the show with me?

  •  No you may not. The only animals allowed at the show are licensed Emblemed Service Animals.
