Toy Fair is the largest international toy and game trade show in the Western Hemisphere. Tens of thousands are on hand to check out over 1,000 exhibitors showcasing and previewing the hottest games, toys and trends for kids (of all ages!).

Each year the Gift Gurus walk the over 350,000 square feet of toys and games. It’s truly is a labor of love to scour the Javits Convention Center and get an early look at what’s new and exciting.

So, what were the hottest, most fun things we saw at Toy Fair this year? We couldn’t be more excited to share some of our favorites:

The Gift: “Appfinity Appfishing” and “Appfinity Appdrive” (both available Fall 2012 for around $20)

The Scoop: Spin Master introduces two new products to their exciting Appfinity mobile gaming line that creates fun and realistic applications for game play on your iPhone, iPod or Android devices.

The Appfinity Appfishing rod brings the excitement of fishing right to your mobile device. The patented touch technology provides a real life fishing experience, whether you catch a trout or a whale this technology allows you to feel the jigging of your catch. The Appfinity Appdrive wheel allows gamers to take the app gaming to a more realistic next level of excitement. The Appdrive is designed to give an all-in-one driving experience with four console designed buttons.

Not only are these app toys supply gaming fun at a great price, but they are the perfect way to entertain your tweens while traveling. But the best part of the new Appfinity product line is that it’s now available for android devices as well!  These devices will be arriving in stores just in time for the holidays, so they pretty much scream “Stocking Stuffer“.

Great Gift: for the app-crazed tween gamer or the mobile gaming Peter Pan adult.
