Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

WMC's Air Swimmers: Flying fish that you control

Amid all the color, light, and noise at Toy Fair, it can be hard to stand out. That was no problem this year for the Air Swimmers: large flying sea creatures that you control.

The Flying Shark and Flying Clownfish (Nemo's species) from William Mark Corp. floated over the show floor, steered from below via remote controllers. You can make them climb and dive (attacking innocent passersby, if you like) as well as control their directions. As they swim through the air, their tails move back and forth, making them move pretty realistically.

One of the fish-flyers told me that that helium makes the blimp-like Air Swimmers float. He said you'll be able to inflate them at any store that sells helium balloons, and a fill-up will last several weeks.

Look for Air Swimmers this July at around $40 each. If you want to see them in action, Coolest Gadgets posted a video from the show.

Those would be awesome in the Ops Center where I toil. We've had little helicopters, but some suspicious dents appeared on the video wall...

I know a bit about the toy business and these will show up at every Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and Costco before I could get them and priced at $25 - $30
