FamilyFun Toy Fair Favorites

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Want a sneak peek at the hottest toys for 2014? Our team of editors launched a new award program at the annual International Toy Fair—FamilyFun Toy Fair Favorites.

Each year, we walk the floor at the Javits Center in New York City, looking at hundreds of toys, all with the goal of finding the very best to share with our readers. Normally, you’ll see those finds on the pages of the magazine throughout the year, culminating in our annual Toy of the Year (T.O.Y.) Awards. This year, we wanted to share some of the toys we’re most excited about with you earlier. You’ll find our 20 picks here, beginning with this super-sweet Hello Kitty Cupcake Cafe.

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Did your family have fun playing with all the new toys over the holidays? Have any favorites? See if they’re finalists for the Toy Industry Association’s Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards and vote for your picks. (I serve on the nominating committee for several categories).  Winners are announced in February, right before the start of Toy Fair.


Speaking of Toy Fair, we’ll have a team from FamilyFun walking the floor, looking at hundreds of new items. Watch for future posts on our finds!
