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 »

BABY | Tiny Love Magical Night Mobile
Although this is not necessarily a toy that your little one can play with, I couldn’t pass up showcasing this mobile that can hang on baby’s crib and play soft sounds. What separates it from other crib mobiles are the amazing projections it displays on the ceiling of your child’s room. Plus, once your baby is older, the mobile can be used as a night light that sits on the table and projects stars onto the ceiling.
