From puzzles to blocks and stickers to molding clay, toy makers are finding new ways to reinvent old favorites for the 21st century. These interpretations may just be expansions and add-ons, but plenty of companies are finding ways to reimagine old favoUrites with high-tech or digital components, or even renewed focus on learning. While wooden building blocks are a tried-and-true favorite, manufacturers are incorporating novel elements to them — from mix and match sets to associated reading books, there are extended play options. And puzzles are getting a major overhaul — we are seeing vertical puzzles (ones you build upwards for added dimension), spherical puzzles, monochromatic puzzles, and more.
Toy companies know that you need to keep your little one entertained wherever you are, and they're adapting toys and coming up with new ideas to accommodate that. We saw plenty of great on-the-go variations, and they're not just the standard travel trays of yesteryear. Some incorporate popular car trip games while others introduce new twists on old classics like Scrabble, and all offer added perks like built-in learning and multiple variations of play, all contained in a compact set.
What kid doesn't love owning a part of his favoUrite movie? Film and superhero tie-ins are nothing new, of course, but more companies than ever before are embracing them. We spotted Star Wars and Lord of the Rings toys, Avengers electronics, and Nickelodeon- and Disney-inspired gear around every corner at Toy Fair.
More specific than educational toys, many of the sets we're seeing emphasize learning a more specific skill set that can be directly applied to an interest or career. These aspirational toys direct kids to channel their passions — whether it be for cooking, fashion, construction, artwork, or science. For instance, we're seeing sets that highlight the properties of electricity and circuits for budding engineers, building sets that stretch the imaginations of future architects, and adventurer action figures for future explorers.
