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

Flying Super Grover 2.0 | Hasbro
Rather than introduce another laughing, dancing, ticklish Elmo, Hasbro went with my personal favorite this year: Grover. And not just any Grover – Super Grover, who raises his arms, makes soaring sounds, and says silly phrases when kids fly him around the house. Even if you’d rather not have another battery-operated toy, toddlers are sure to fall in love with this one. I know I did.
Ages: 2 – 5 years
