“ThinkGeek” Gadgets at NY Toy Fair 2014

NerdNewsToday favorite, Think Geek, was at NY Toy Fair 2014 this week with a few new items to debut. Makers and distributors of finer nerd products, this year the company showed off their new Technomancer digital wizard hoodie, an electrical hoodie with LED lights in the sleeves and cowl that allows you to cast up to nine spells with lights and sounds.

The company also unveiled a retro arcade watch with a metal body and real old-school arcade sounds, “Light Kicks” that hook up to any pair of shoes that light up with movements, and my personal favorite, the Lazer Tag “FPS” hoodie that has to be seen to be believed. Shut up and take my money!

Grumpy Cat Merchandise at NY Toy Fair 2014

The Ganz booth got grumpy with us at NY Toy Fair 2014, and I am not just talking surly booth reps! Bad jokes aside, Ganz unveiled a plethora of Grumpy Cat products at the show this year, from plushes to shirts, kitchenwares and novelties, and plenty more, with a far-from-grumpy booth-rep giving us the walkthrough.

Unfortunately, we missed the main feline of the day, as Grumpy Cat was appearing in this booth earlier in the week, but plenty of photos are floating around online of other lucky Toyfair goer’s who got to meet this kitty.

New “My Little Pony” dolls at NY Toy Fair 2014

Friendship is magic, but who needs friends when you can have ponies!

Hasbro unveiled a stable of new “My Little Pony” dolls & playsets during their press event at NY Toy Fair 2014. The company showed off plenty of new ponies, as well as a deluxe Rainbow Dash that flips in the air, deluxe “Styling Strands” Fluttershy and Rarity, “Glitter” dolls that will feature snowglobe-like qualities in their translucent bodies, and new blind-box ponies.

The big item this year is the “Princess Twilight Sparkle’s Friendship Rainbow Kingdom Palace” (seriously, what a name!), with multiple tiers and hidden items to make for one huge playset. My personal favorite is the “My Little Pony Pop” line, which lets you make your own custom mini-ponies with smaller playsets that give you lots of control over what your pony will look like!
