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: Eco-Bonks (available now for around $60)

The Scoop: Eco-Bonks are a really great looking inflatable bop bag toy. But that’s only half the story! While the bop bag toy’s form looks quite familiar, these boppers aren’t clowning around!  Eco-Bonks have really friendly and colorful animals on the outside, but are all “green” on the inside.

The Eco-Bonk is a BPA-free, biodegradable inflatable which is gets covered in any one of three 100% certified organic cotton animal covers. And when “bopped” the 36” tall animal will come bounding back upright as it’s weighted at the bottom. With three playful animals to choose from (…and an owl, gibbon, and whale on the way!), any kid’s room will surely make an ideal new habitat.

And as a bonus, for each Eco-Bonk sold, a donation is made to the Wildlife Alliance.

A Great Gift For: animal-loving kids and their Eco-aware parents!
