Ali Mierzejewski is a senior editor at The Toy Insider and is #blessed to provide all of the social media content across the brand’s platforms. In addition, she fawns over (read: writes reviews of) the newest toys on the shelves, as well as reports on toy trends and the latest products.
During her time as a professional toy expert, Ali has built an (honestly) impressive amount of Lego sets—and will challenge you to a building race any day of the week. When she’s not binge-watching Netflix shows or obsessing over celebrity gossip, Ali is figuring out how to incorporate her favorite Nerf blasters into her improv shows and be a superhero IRL.
In addition to Toy Insider content, Ali contributes features to leading trade magazines The Toy Book and The Licensing Book, sharing the latest trends and products with retailers, manufacturers, and licensors. You can be friends with her via Twitter @ohsotrendy.
