Everything “toys” under one roof

Bangladesh has been witnessing the birth and growth of a cosmopolitan pop culture scene over the last half decade or so, with movie premiere extravaganzas, costume events, and more. One of the shiny new additions to this blossoming community is the Toycon.

The brainchild of Saadi Rahman – avid toy collector of Dhaka Comicon fame – the first Toycon took place in Bangladesh last year, and is back for the second year by popular demand.

The two-day event is everything toys. From the 1950’s to the present, the organizers promise an immersive experience that is perfect for all ages. From displays by local collectors, to panel discussions, toy making booths, trading booths, refreshments, and over 2 dozen toy vendors selling goodies based around pop culture themes, this truly a celebration of toys. 

The event is set for Friday and Saturday, July 20-21, 2018, respectively, and will run from 11am to 8pm, at Midas Center, Level 12, Dhanmondi.

Tickets will be available at the gate for Tk100 per entry. This event is brought to you by Daraz Online Shopping and co sponsored by Za n Zee Ice Cream.
