This year Babble sent two of its bloggers to the New York Toy Fair to scope out the latest and greatest products for kids and the family. Joslyn Gray and Lauren Jimeson lived every child’s dream, playing with hundreds of the hottest toys to narrow down their favorite picks based on educational value, originality, and overall entertainment factor. While Lauren rounded up toys for babies, toddlers, and kids 3+, Joslyn covered kids 5+, kids 8+ and the top family games. Their final list features brands as big as Hasbro and as small as SweetLocks Brushes (which is still seeking crowdsourced funding) — so you’re sure to find some new toys for your little ones that will earn you an extra hug or two! —Babble Editorssee the full list »

TODDLER | Playskool Poppin Park Press N Pop Pinball
This game brings some fun with jungle animals. Toddlers can press levers to see the ball go down the different ramps and run into each animal. All sorts of lights and sounds play as the ball goes through, which makes it even more fun. Both of my girls have always love the Poppin Park collection from Playskool. This particular set makes the animals look like they are gobbling up the balls!
