Take heart. The annual international Toy Fair last week in New York introduced a slew of new playthings, as reported in the Columbus Dispatch.
A few highlights:
• The remote-controlled Zoomer Dino, which won overall toy of the year, and can dance, roar, chase, or just follow your kid around.
• Sync Snap Pets, key-chain-size, animal-shaped cameras (made by the Wow Wee Group) that link to phones to capture selfies.
• And for the tween in your life, Fashion Angel’s Garbage to Glam craft kits, which can turn bottles, plastic bags, and tees into jewelry, purses, and picture frames.
