2013 ASTRA Marketplace & Academy

June 16-19, 2013

Nashville, Tennessee



There’s thirteen hundred and fifty-two guitar pickers in Nashville…and  the Cleveland Kids plan to make Donkey It’s A Kick! players out of all of them!

Dust off your boots and polish up your spurs for the biggest event of the year when ASTRA brings the best of the best to Nashville for the business of play.  Booth 1147 is where we’ll be at this sold out event that draws manufacturers and buyers from all over the world and puts them together for 3 fabulous, fun-filled days.

Nashville, often referred to as The City With A Pulse, is known for its’ great food, outstanding music, and a double helping of good old southern charm.  Combine all that with the relaxing atmosphere of ASTRA’s Marketplace & Academy and it’s easy to see why this is an event we wouldn’t dream of missing.

Cleveland Kids LLC is a proud member of ASTRA (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association) and congratulates KathleenMcHugh, President of ASTRA on being named “Person of the Year” by Global Toy News.





The South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is where the action will be when TOYFEST WEST kicks off the region’s largest toy industry event of 2013.  Just in time to catch a break from the winter months, buyers and exhibitors will come from all over the United States and Canada for the fun, the sun, and the excitement.  With this winning combination the odds are in favor of a great turnout and you can bet that Cleveland Kids will be there early to get in on the non-stop activities planned for the week.  Booth 425 is where we'll be, doing what we do best...Kicking up a "Puck Ruckus!"


The show opens on Sunday, March 10th and runs through Wednesday, March 13th.  Sunday night promises to be a gala affair  with food, entertainment, and an awards ceremony honoring some of the best in the business.  This year's Retailer Of The Year Award honors Geppetto's of La Jolla, CA.  If you're looking to rediscover your inner (or your outer) child, just walk into one of their amazing stores in the San Diego area.  You're sure to leave there feeling like a kid again. Visit their website at www.gepettostoys.com and see for yourself why they have earned this prestigious award.   Cleveland Kids congratulates Gepetto's on being named the 2013  Retailer of the Year.
