Do This: Tampa Bay Toy Expo

Tampa Bay Toy Expo
Sat., Jan. 30, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. $5 plus convenience charge.
Hilton Garden Inn Tampa North, 13305 Tampa Oaks Blvd., Tampa.

Ever wish you could spend the day in a room packed with toys like you did when you were a kid (or, come on, like yesterday)? The second annual Tampa Bay Toy Expo makes it so. More than just vendors showcasing their playthings, this family-friendly con features extra stuff like guests (comic artists Austin Janowsky and Javier Lugo; Star Wars costumers The Florida Garrison and Ra Kura Base; um, Sexy Mario?), a silent auction to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and, in celebration of The Force Awakens, an entire room dedicated to Star Wars. Bring the kids, or just, you know, the one you used to have to hide inside yourself before such things became cool.
