I’m a Toy Expert That Can Help!

My name is Charlene DeLoach and I used to write laws. Then I had a lifestyle blog called Charlene Chronicles. But now? I write about play! For the past ten years, I have been a contributing editor for a leading toy media company. I’ve appeared in over 90 toy-related television segments, written over 250 toy-specific articles and reviews as a contributing editor, and am an event planner in the toy industry. I am also a Mom to a boy and a girl!

My health care law background and experience with children with neurological differences have fostered my longevity in the toy field. I have a talent for understanding what toys can offer beyond the box. As a result, I’ve been also quoted in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, The Huffington Post, Macomb Daily, ScaryMommy.com, and Forbes.com, and have several toy video series with Parents.com. Over the years, I have contributed to a variety of print resources and have assisted over 50 toy companies with play ideas.

Now, I want to help you find the best play possible!
