The American International Toy Fair reveals new products

This year marks the 117th American International Toy Fair. It is the largest toy trade show in the Western Hemisphere, the third largest in the world and a critical time for the approximately $22 Billion U.S. traditional toy industry. More than 1,600 manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents from 30 countries will be showing more than 100,000 toys.

The show is closed to consumers, but Chris Byrne the “Toy Guy” provides an exclusive inside look from the show floor.
