It has been awesome reading all of these responses and posts. Derek - let's try to talk on Monday as I will be at the Nurnberg Toy Fair all next week. If we don't connect tomorrow let's plan a call for the following week!
Sure - just shoot an email or give me a ring when you have a chance :)
Enjoy Toy Fair!

I second the idea of demo tables. HABA games are so fun that passers-by will see people playing games like Animal Upon Animal or Dancing Eggs and can learn to play simply by watching.
If you want to entertain the kids while giving parents time to shop, maybe have a craft table? One suggestion is for kids to crayon color picures of HABA game characters. Simple and easy and gives mom or dad a little time to browse the merchandise.
