Once again, I attended Toy Fair, and wandered every aisle!  I didn’t visit every showroom, since some required appointments, or weren’t that interesting, but I made a point to visit those with comics licensees, as well as geeky fun!

Here’s my photo blog, in four parts, with a few company-specific reports for those with LOTS of product!

I slept in on Saturday, and arrived around Noon at Javits. I decided to be systematic, so I started at aisle 100 and worked  my way north. The first booth that caught my eye:

American Jewel

If these were antennas, it would be even more functional! They also produce regular cat headphones as well.    https://www.americanjewel.com/collections/cat-headphones/products/0-cat-headphones

Mighty Jaxx

As you can see, there’s an entire line of XXRay figurines available!

Project Genius

Uwe Mèffert designed the Pyramix in 1976, and continues to create new puzzles to challenge and vex!     https://www.projectgeniusinc.com/

Monogram International

Banks!

More banks, plus NBC!

Tonner

In addition to the Wonder Woman figures, there are also Outlander dolls on the way, but they could not be photographed.

Schleich

A new figure. Check here: https://www.schleich-s.com/en/US/marvel/products.html  They also produce DC figures!

Schleich has been making Smurf figurines since 1965! This is the Football set, just in time for the World Cup!   https://www.schleich-s.com/en/US/the-smurfs.html

Imperial Toy

These food trucks are all fictional! Which is disappointing… I’d love to try them all!   Maybe someone will license t-shirts?
Metal Earth

Yes… this entire model is printed on flat sheets of metal! 
Whoa… I never paired these two novels before!

Lego

A teaser for the upcoming Lego post! These are the next wave of Lego Batman blind bags!

4D Cityscape

http://4dcityscape.com/ They offer real cities as well, and the base layers show the history of development.

The Magic Classroom

These are magic tricks, available as cards, or as small boxes. The comic tells the story of the trick. You’re then given a secret password for their website, where a video explains how the trick is presented.    https://themagicclassroom.com/

Kahootz Toys

This is the do-it-yourself version of a simple kinetic sculpture/executive toy.
In the works. This box is from 1992. Nickelodeon is licensing a lot of their 90s cartoon properties.
Quite possibly the world’s most frustrating toy! 
Like the Fashion Plates, but for boys?

Playmate Toys

Replicas of the TMNT arcade games.

The previous set can be stacked on top of another set!

Princess ParadiseRubie’s

An inflatable Batsuit, similar to their extremely popular T-Rex!

Klutz

Kettler USA

Rody, by Gymnic. No particular reason, I just wanted a nice colorful image for “atmosphere”.

Royal Bobbles

Not to be confused with the Funko figures. Lots of Ross licensing seen at this show. Firefly Brand Management handles the licensing…Rizzoli will be publishing art books!

Toy of the Year
…and on the way out, a fake claw machine…
