Toy Fair 2011: Hot stuff from the show floor

Straight from Toy Fair, the largest toy trade show in the Western Hemisphere, here's a preview of some of the hot, new toys for 2011.

We don't cover a whole lot of kids toys here at CNET, but every year we make the journey to Toy Fair, which is once again in town at the Javitz Center 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 that are on display. But hopefully there's a little something for everyone in this lengthy photomontage (click on any image to start the slideshow).

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