The annual Toy Fair is here again. That playful time of the year when media gets a sneak peek at the hot new toys for 2017!
Some trends to be on the lookout for:
Collectibles 2.0 and Movie Mania
As always toys inspired from the Hollywood will be a hit for kids and collectors. It will definitely be a big year for Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST live action film, LEGO movies, SMURFS, THE JUSTICE LEAGUE, AVENGERS more.
