This February, hundreds of thousands of the world’s most innovative children’s playthings will fill the vast aisles of the North American International Toy Fair™. Owned and operated by the U.S. Toy Industry Association (TIA), the show will take place at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from Saturday, February 13 through Tuesday, February 16, 2016.

Established more than a century ago, Toy Fair has evolved into the largest toy and youth entertainment product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere with an ever-growing domestic and international audience that includes nearly 30,000 manufacturers, distributors, retailers, licensors, entertainment executives, inventors and trade guests. Last year’s show was the largest in its 113-year history, setting a new record with 421,300 net square feet of exhibit space filled with brand-new, skill-building and cutting-edge toys and games.

To date, more than 1,050 exhibitors have already signed up for Toy Fair 2016, including big names such as Mattel, Spin Master, LEGO, Crayola, ALEX Brands, Melissa & Doug and TOMY, as well as 217 first-time exhibitors who are eager to make their mark on the international toy industry. About 10,000 global buyers from powerhouse retail outlets and 1,000 members of the press are expected at Toy Fair, where they will scope out specialty and high-end toys, innovative tech toys, educational games, dolls and plush, outdoor ride-ons, active toys and everything in between. The marketplace offers plenty of opportunities for “hands-on” fun, with many exhibitors allowing buyers to test and play with their latest product lines right on the show floor. Year after year, visitors say they spot more trends and creative, cutting-edge products at Toy Fair than at any other toy show in the world.
