The Hot Scoop on Great Toy & Game Trends for 2013 from Toy Expert Reyne Rice!

What are the latest trends in toys? In February during the same week as Toy Fair, Toy Trend Expert and regular speaker at the Nuremburg Toy Fair, Reyne Rice tipped us off to this year’s hottest toys and gives us a sneak peek at what we’ll be seeing later in the year.

Apps, tablets and continued play are big categories. Are building blocks passe? They are back with a vengence! Little cellphone-shaped blocks with video screens can be lined up together for a group or used individually for playing educational games. The group play is new evolution in social networking-at a kid’s level. Video games are still hot on the radar as well.

Reyne Rice has over 30 years’ experience in the Toy Industry. She’s the Toy and games reporter for DailyLounge.com and Rice was the Trend Specialist for the Toy Industry Association and is currently a Contributing Editor at Adventure Publishing Group portfolio of publications, as well as a Contributing Editor for Play-It Global Toy Magazine and International Toy Trade Publications (ITTMA Group).

Thank you to DailyLounge.com and Reyne Rice for the great 411!!
