The best toys of the 110th American International Toy Fair were either completely novel, or brought a really cool twist to something classic. From a new Twister game that will work up a sweat, to a fresh take on the simple flying disc, there were some great choices for kids age 8 and up.
Although I think my picks for the Best New Toys for Ages 5 to 7 will probably appeal to kids over that range, the toys here are intended specifically for kids age 8 and up. One toy, the new LEGO Mindstorm, is for kids 10 and up.
Some of these items are available now, and some won’t be out until later this years. I’ve provided links for all.
