New York Toy Fair
We’re off! The MFM team, armed with camera, notebook and oodles of excitement head into New York’s Toy Fair 2012
Master Moves Mickey
Set to be the hottest toy for Christmas 2012, Master Moves Mickey is a breakdancing figure that’ll keep little ones entertained for hours. As Sunny Lauridsen, Director of Digital Toys for Disney Consumer Products, told us, “He’s cool, but Mickey cool.”
Justin Bieber better watch his back!
The highly debated girls’ Lego range, Lego Friends, is a treasure trove of hidden extras for girls to discover. Our favourite little extra was food on the BBQ and a hedgehog in the garden of Olivia’s house. A must for girls who love to build and play with their creations.
Tomy’s Stack Track
Thanks to Tomy trains just got even more interesting. This Stack Track can reach 2ft in height and is super sturdy. Plus, Thomas trains fit the track – so no need to buy lots of new trains if you already have some.
Retro travel games
Basic Fun had a huge range of classic toys in travel form. From Bop It to Simon Says these toys never seem to get old. Handy for long journeys this summer.
Jake and the Neverland Pirates toys
Ideal for fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates (though there’s no need to have seen the show) this kit comes complete with super-realistic toys and dress up items. From gold coins to exploding compartments there’s something for every wannabe pirate.
Mickey and Donald Have A Farm
Following on from Mickey and Donald’s space adventures comes a more down-to-earth theme – Mickey and Donald Have A Farm. This bright, durable and inviting range of toys is all designed around kids using their imagination and being up and active while playing.
Playmobil eggs will be perfect Easter gifts for kids who enjoy building figures and for mums who want the pieces to be in one place when they’re finished! Playmobil also do special lucky dip versions where you don’t know which figure you’ll get.
Ideal if you’re trying to keep the chocolate count down this Easter.
Z Wind Ups
These little dudes can really move! Wind the figures up and watch them dance, wiggle and groove. Hours of entertainment guaranteed from the simplest of toys.
See them dancing for real on the MFM YouTube channel.
Spiderman Connect 4
Jazz up your boring yellow and red Connect 4 with this awesome Spiderman version. Basic Toys also showcased an entire Batman range. Let the superhero battle commence.
