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 | Step2 Easy Turn Coupe
Give your tots some wheels of their own with this stylish new coupe. Complete with cup holders, a sun roof, a working horn, and even an ignition key, this car is pretty close to the real deal. But no need to worry about driver’s tests just yet; I especially love that the car allows for the parent to steer. When the child gets old enough the footboard can come out for them to “drive” on their own.
