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

Laughing Stock | Milliwik
A typical Laughing Stock card will read something like What did the noun verb the noun? You come up with the joke (filling in the blanks Mad Lib-style), and the rest of the group comes up with a funny answer. Best punch line wins.
Although this game is best played in a group of witty comedians, it’s appropriate for the entire family – especially to help recognize the difference between nouns and verbs.
