This year I attended the Toy Fair in New York. It was my first time attending such a huge Toy Fair, I’ve been to a few in Chicago but none this big! Before the actual toy fair kicked off Hasbro hosted a first look blogger party for bloggers to see the latest and greatest from Hasbro!
We got a chance to preview some of Hasbro’s hottest lines and upcoming releases!
Another big trend in the toy industry right now is creating toys that are no longer gender specific. For example, Nerf once considered boys toys has crossed over and created a line for girls called Nerf Rebelle! The same great concept as the original Nerf line but more feminine. Easy Bake Oven was once considered a girls toy, now they have come up with a neutral Easy Bake Oven. Lets face it boys like to cook as well! I love this idea of creating gender neutral toys for both sexes.

I’m so excited for the new toys coming from Hasbro! They have definitely kept up with the times and most importantly the toys reflect the needs of today’s children. I love how so many toys incorporated the use of the iPad to engage our children. After all we are living in a technology area! If you are looking for toys for your kids whether education or just for fun, check out some of the toys above you won’t be disappointed.
