I recently attended Toy Fair 2010 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. There were so many great products shown, from big and small companies.
Kidkraft seriously blew me away. We were already big fans of their Hannukah Set (my cousin bought it for my son 2 years ago). Kidkraft makes some terrific wood items. From wooden pirate ship playsets (see above), to firehouse sets, play kitchens and religious sets (they have many Jewish and a couple of Christian sets) — their toys are all terrific quality. The company was also promoting personalization on benches, toy kitchens, and fabric-covered chairs. You can add your child’s name and choose a graphic.

ALEX Toys had an impressive amount of new products. Their Ready, Set, Go Trike is a tricycle that grows with your child, from older baby to preschooler. Comes in red and pink. While their trampoline isn’t new (there’s younger child size and a older child size), it was terrific and very sturdy. I loved their many craft kits – especially the Color My Bag line. They’ve even got Shrinky Dinks!
