PLAYTIME and KID are located in the heart of Paris. PLAYTIME PARIS was located in Parc Floral and KID took place at a fabulous location, a venue that used to be a hot-air balloon factory. The spirit of the historical building is preserved and thanks to a minimalist and elegant design the exhibitor’s collections were displayed in an intimate setting.
We love it!
