Pogo Sticks of Doom and Other Gems From a Massive Toy Fair

The Toy Fair is exactly what it sounds like. It’s been going on for 111 years, and it’s huge. This year, more than 1,150 toy companies squeezed into New York City’s Javits Convention Center to show off the new things kids will be clamoring for later this year. Toy traditionalists and forward-thinkers have much to get excited about: While apps, robots, and meme-based toys are all trending, plenty of old-school playthings are in the mix, too.

 

There was plenty for us older “kids” too. A home version of the classic Chexx bubble hockey table from the early 1980s — complete with customizable teams and your very own “Boo” button — was on display at the show. If you’ve always craved a 1965 Volkswagen Camper Van but want to avoid paying for gas, there was an actual-size, four-person Volkswagen Camper Van tent. And if you want to hone your ping-pong skills but don’t have anyone to compete against, the Joola iPong Pro is essentially a table-tennis pitching machine with a 100-ball hopper.

But enough banter. Let’s go look at some toys.
