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

Take-Along Soccer Match | Playmobil
In celebration of the upcoming Olympics, Playmobil created this mini soccer field with six soccer players that kick with the click of a button. Even the soccer goalies, connected to joysticks, can block goals. And then when the game is over, just pack it into the travel-ready set and bring it with you.
