My 8 Favorite Toys From the Top Toys of 2013

I swear our house is being overtaken by toys at the moment. We just got out of our busy time of year, the few months where we have Christmas and all then three kids have their birthdays. All these events bring a lot of new toys, books, and other fun things into the house and I struggle to find space and weed out the toys that they no longer play with.

I am always on the hunt for new toys and prefer ones that help my kids with their fine motor movements, are educational and fun, and that all three of them can play with. As my kids get older, the toys they play with get more complicated and contain more pieces, but we all have fun playing with them.

Two fellow Babble bloggers visited the 2013 Toy Fair and compiled their favorite toys from different age categories. There are some really fun and cool toys coming out later this year and I am already putting some in mind for the next gift-giving season.

Here are the top 8 toys that I think look the most awesome from Babble’s Toy New Toys of 2013 list:

    Seriously, this product is just smart! We have so much Lego and similar type products in the house and clean-up time takes forever. This solution is exactly what I need!

  • Magnatab 4 of 9
    Magnatab
    Having a child who has been struggling with fine motor movements, I am always on the lookout for toys that can help strengthen this. This Magnatab looks like it would help with writing skills and still be fun.
