Another year of New York Toy Fair has come and gone, showcasing four days of exciting new products.
As always, the biggest toy makers were there to reveal their upcoming product lines, including Hasbro, Mattel, LEGO, Funko, TOMY, Spin Master, NECA, and many more.
This year, Disney did not host their own big presentation, opting instead to let their various licensees take the spotlight to discuss upcoming merchandise for properties including “Inside Out,” “The Good Dinosaur,” and – of course – “Frozen.”
But there was so many more exciting new products than just Disney, including licensed properties from Universal, Nickelodeon, and other big names, as well as some fun independent items.
We snapped thousands of photos and shot plenty of video to bring you inside New York Toy Fair 2015, all featured below in this one massive wrap-up post. As you scroll below, you’ll first see highlights of what we think were the best products at a variety of booths. Then at the bottom is a massive slideshow revealing the rest, which will leave you flipping through pictures for hours. Enjoy.

In addition to the newest offerings from Disney, Monster High, and Barbie, Mattel also unveiled exciting new MegaBlox kits and an inventive new ViewMaster VR system.

LEGO – Star Wars, Marvel, Jurassic World, Scooby-Doo
One of the biggest exhibitors at Toy Fair, LEGO featured exciting new building kits for Jurassic World and Scooby-Doo along with continuations of the lines for Marvel and Star Wars, with more to come for “The Force Awakens.”
