Babble Best Toys of 2012
The New York Toy Fair is one of the biggest toy conventions in the world, with everyone from toy giants (like Hasbro and Fisher-Price) to innovative start-up companies (like Begin Again and iBuKu) sharing their newest designs and imaginative ideas for kids toys. We were the envy of every child this week, sorting through hundreds of thousands of new products to find the very best toys of 2012. And we have to say it was an impressive year, filled with tech innovations, toys made of unique eco-materials, and a few brand new companies that deserve serious recognition. If we missed one of your favorite new toys of 2012, nominate it here! - Michelle Horton

3-in-1 Rocker Napper | Tiny Love
This 3-in-1 baby toy is one of my most exciting Toy Fair finds for new parents – not only because it’s a multi-purpose product that can be used for kids who weigh up to 40 lbs., but because it’s sold at a reasonable price. This sleek baby rocker, which features calming vibrations, hanging toys, and nine soothing tunes, can be stabilized for baby feeding and then reclined all the way down into a bassinet. And thanks to its one-handed recline feature and smooth rocking motion, you won’t have to sacrifice function or style for affordability.
