Chris Byrne: 2013 Toy Fair
Leave it to “the toy guy,” Chris Byrne, to bring us the coolest new toys around. Chris recently visited the 2013 Toy Fair, and he brought Kelly & Michael some of his top picks. Toy segments are always fun because, not only do we get to see Kelly & Michael act like kids, but we also learn great gift ideas for upcoming birthdays and holidays.
Let’s take a look at some of Chris’s top picks from the 2013 Toy Fair. They’re the toys your kids will be clamoring for in the coming year.
Chris Byrne: Flying Toys
- The Flutterbye Fairies ($34.99) fly through the air like magic. I can see any little girl going crazy over them.
- For kids who prefer their flying toys a bit more heroic, there are the Flying Heroes ($16.99) such as Wolverine and Spiderman.
- Sky Ripperz ($14.99) is a game that your kids will love to play. They can launch the ripperz at a target (or at each other).
- Disney Planes Pilot Pals Dusty Crophopper Remote Control Plane ($39.99) copies the movements of the person controlling it.
Chris Byrne: Creative Toys
- The Glow Crazy Pattern Painter ($19.99) allows your kids to draw with glow-in-the-dark paint.
- Kelly tried out the Kid Construction Dragon ($39.99) which is a giant dragon you can make from scratch.
- In the Boom Boom Balloon Game ($19.99), the person who breaks the balloon first loses.
Chris Byrne: Dolls & Stuffed Animals
- The Bitsy Burpsy Baby Doll ($24.95) throws up and has a wet diaper.
- I much preferred the Furreal Friends Cuddles, My Giggly Monkey Pet ($79.99), that at least looked soft and fluffy.
Chris Byrne: Remote Control Toys
- Kids who prefer more complex toys will love the Hot Wheels Spinshotz Rail Rip Race ($39.99), Mind Stormz EV3 ($349.99) and the Combat Creature Attacknid Robot ($99).
