Out of the tens of thousands of new toys at the 2013 American International Toy Fair, the Toydozer caught my eye big time! Literally, here’s the scoop!

Toy Name: The Toydozer

The Scoop: The Toydozer is a classic “why didn’t I think of that” product. You’re on the right track if you think of a colorful dustpan / bulldozer hybrid. Kids (of all ages) love playing with construction toys like LEGOS and wooden building blocks. But we all know the smaller parts and pieces can get everywhere and are a pain to clean up. Enter the Toydozer. With this clever product, parents and kids can easily scoop up all the toy pieces and deposit them in their storage bins. Clean up has never been this easy. Check out the video below for more of the scoop (get it?).

A Great Gift For: Parents who love that their kids are so creative, but don’t necessarily love cleaning up after them!

When & How Much? The Toydozer is available now for around $15 in lots of vibrant colors. Made in the USA too!

You don’t want to miss the scoop from the “110th annual American International Toy Fair® (February 10th – 13th )! It’s the largest toy and youth product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere, bringing together more than 1,000 exhibiting manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents from around the globe to showcase their toy and entertainment products from classic toys to interactive entertainment and everything in between.”

Each year, the Gift Gurus walk the over 350,000 square feet at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City in search of the most giftable toys and games. It truly is a labor of love (and comfy shoes!) to get an early look at what’s new and exciting for the kiddos. This industry only event is where the big sellers for the holidays are determined…yes, they are determined in February! And, as always, we’re taking you with us into the belly of the beast to see what’s hot before it hits the shelves.

Stay tuned to see all of our American International Toy Fair finds for the scoop on what our predictions are for this and previous years.
