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: Lazer Tag System from Hasbro (available August 2012 for around $70 ages 8+)

The Scoop: Get ready for a new fun way to game with your iPhone and iPod Touch with the Lazer Tag System blasters. By connecting your iPhone/iPod Touch to the blaster you’re well on your way to an augmented reality gaming experience and having hours of single or multi-player fun. Blasters are equipped with a “Lazer” firing range of over 250 feet and a display that allows players to see the lazer shots and keep track of their remaining power.

In single player mode blasters provide a view of targets and enemies in your area and also keeps track of your stats on the virtual leader board. In multi-player mode you’ll have as many as 24 people playing the ultimate outdoor game. Lazer Tag Blasters are a great gift idea for i-connected kids and tweens who love to play outdoors (or even for their parents!).

Laser Tag Blasters are just the toy to get kids off the couch and cure the summertime blues this year.

Great Gift: for the wild child who can’t keep still or the fun loving adult.
