TTPM SPRING SHOWCASE HOTTEST TOYS 2015 RECAP 

4 May

TTPM had their Spring Showcase and as always I had a great time seeing the hottest toys of Summer 2015. We started with a press conference unveiling the top products and trends for the season from the TTPM editorial team. My favorite part was testing out the toys and meeting with more than 30+ companies from Nickelodeon, Lego, Toys R Us, Mattel, Universal, Hasbro, etc. 

Are you looking for a great scooter for your kids or even yourself? I am. Well Micro Kickboard has amazing scooters for ages 1 and up. Their smooth gliding and polyurethane wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck absorbs bumps in the sidewalk. As a New Yorker I found this the number one reason these are the perfect scooters. Also lightweight and portable. There is also a two-way kickstand on the Micro Black/White for ages teen/adult. Love that too!! The Micro Sprite for ages 8+ is only 5.5 lbs. with an adjustable height handle bar that extends 34 inches above the deck. Colors available: Red, Black, Blue, Pink, Purple and Silver. The Micro Mini 3 in 1 is a ride on toy and scooter that grows with children from 1-5 yrs old in 3 stages. Now that’s getting your money worth. Our family will love these. For more info on all the scooters check out http://www.microkickboard.com 

K’nex showed us their Mighty Makers collection. Created by an all female marketing and design team these construction toys are designed to empower girls to build big ideas through creative and stimulating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The set comes with colorful rods, connectors, panels and story based instructions that follow the adventures of the included female figure. Choose from Inventor’s Clubhouse, Ferris Wheel, and Home Designer to name a few. My daughter is going to love this. Check out knex.com 

Just Play came through with he mini snowmen from DISNEY’S Frozen movie. They are called Snowgie Chatterbacks. These plush characters talk and repeat what you say in funny voices as their heads and bodies bob up and down. The Sheriff Callie’s Callie-oke Sing Along is great for those who love singing. Press her badge to hear her sing her theme song and dance along. There is more available from this line as well. Go online to http://www.justplayproducts.com 

Alex Toys DIY Bro Bands are great for the boys in the family who want to make friendship bracelets to give to his friends. You can make 15 bracelets in 2 styles with lots of patterns in glow and neon. I loved the hair chalk pens that were for the guys but us girls can use it too. Includes 6 hair chalk pens that are washable. For the girls Shrimky Dinks Bake & Shape Jewelry. Amazing Knitter, make tons of knitted strands to create necklaces, bracelets and headbands. Slinky is still around for those that remember. This Slinky makes 10 different silly sounds as it flips and walks.  Their web is http://www.alexbrands.com

Squeaker football, crunchable football, football launcher, barbell chew toy, rubber tennis ball, whistling flyer disc and a squeaker bone are just some of the toys available to keep your dog active the entire day outdoors and in.

Each set comes with two light up rockets and one launcher. The Bow now with blazing LED light up power. Just hook the Zonic blaze arrow into the loops then pull back and it’s ready to fire.

Minions made an appearance at TTPM for pic ops and to greet the kids that cam later on during the day. The gifting suite was handing out Minion helmets which were so cute. You could choose one eye or two on the helmet. These are  going to be a big hit this summer and for many more to come. I could never get tired of Minions. We all love them. 

Skyrocket Toys have these helmets available. They also have safety pads, a Minion Kickboard and goggle swim mask for the water for ages 3 and up. There’s also the Minion Singing Sound Pad that plays hilarious musical Minion sounds and harmonies.  For more visit http://www.skyrockettoys.com
