Toy Fair 2012: The hottest new toys from the show floor

iPad accessories, dancing robots, DVRs for kids, helicopters, and much more. We bring you the best of Toy Fair 2012.


We don't cover a whole lot of toys for kids here at CNET, but every year we make the journey to Toy Fair, which is once again in town at the Javitz Center here in New York. And like every other online gadget publication, we wanted to give you a little taste of what's there.

Granted, with somewhere around 1,500 manufacturers, distributors, importers, and sales agents from 30 countries making the rounds at the convention center, we're only highlighting a small fraction of all the products on display. But hopefully there's a little something for everyone in the lengthy photomontage below (click on any image to start the slideshow).

Enjoy--and as always, feel free comment. The last slide returns you to the main story.
