Toy Fair 2013


Christmas may be ten months away, but at this week's Toy Fair, we got a first look at new toys coming out this year. During our time at the show, which mainly took place at Manhattan's Javits Center, we found out about toys celebrating big anniversaries in 2013 (Cabbage Patch Kids and Transformers turn 30, Easy Bake Oven turns 50); playthings that incorporate technology into their design (an iPad digital makeup mirror for Barbie, a new WowWee robot that holds an iPhone); and updated and new craft toys to inspire creative play (Play-Doh Plus; Skwooshi, a modeling compound that crystalizes; Alex's photo-booth kit). Other favorites included a wooden UFO (complete with aliens) from Hape Toys, a remake of the View-Master, a child-sized Elmo from Hasbro and three-wheeled scooters for preschoolers from Razor. Scroll through our slide show to see photos from our day at the Toy Fair—we have a feeling you'll be hearing more about some of these toys later in the year when your kids ask for them for the holidays!
