Toysmith Toy Fair in Action Video!
Toysmith partner, Ignite Films created an amazing video of the new booth!
Our open concept booth, #2251 was also in a new location at Toy Fair this year and so well-received by our visitors! This updated layout gave Toysmith a fresh opportunity to share our more than 165 new products and programs. Fewer walls meant more ways to interact with Toy Fair attendees as well as full visibility of our offerings. We hope you felt the good vibes and received a warm welcome! And how about that new booth smell?!
Toysmith Welcomes Kidfluencers and Other Visitors!

Speaking of NEW, did you get your grabbers on Snapperz? This addictive fidget gadget got attendees to SNAP to attention with each squeeze! It’s a palm-poppin’ good time that’s hard to put down, a full sensory experience that encourages players to GRAB. SNAP! SMILE. REPEAT.
Toysmith continued the sensory trend with with our ASMR-inspired line, Oddly Satisfying for a multi-sensory play experience.

Award-Winning Warrior’s Mark line Hits the Mark!
Inspired by ancient chakram, the Warrior’s Mark Throwing Blades by Toysmith was a bit hit! (pun intended.)

The target easily folds small with a quick twist, making it perfect for on the go outdoor or indoor play.
