The 2011 American International Toy Fair (the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere) wrapped up on Wednesday, Feb. 16 after a four-day period of having brought together over 10,000 eager buyers, viewing more than 100,000 toys that are destined to flood the retail market in the coming months.
Every imaginable type of toy was represented at the Fair - from high-tech gadgets to books, dolls, games puzzles and more; something for every age group.
Attendees viewed the perennial Barbie and Ken, to the newly introduced helium flying fish, with lots of choices in between.
