For the Jakarta 9th Toys & Comic Fair 2013 by Sacca production itself has very good attention. Since the first day the participants numbers was amazing. Many peoples talked this was the one biggest toys fair ever than last year. Mention the toys and I guess you can find here. The food area almost always crowded all the time during the event also. More than 50 booth stands was there include the stands for sellers and the stands for hobby communities and or organizations. Amazing!
