Spin Master is the company behind some of the toys that probably haunt your nightmares - they are the ones that your kids won't stop playing with, the ones you had to fight other moms and dads to get, and the ones that you had to camp outside of your local Toys R Us or Target to get.  Some of the toys you know them for include Hatchimals, the Star Wars BB, PAW Patrol Toys, and Zoomer Chimp.

Now, the leading global children's entertainment company has revealed what it has in store for families at the North American International Toy Fair. They have continued their tradition of creating toys and games that are interactive, fun, educational, and exciting. This year, they've worked with advanced robotics, STEM products, and more.

"Spin Master continues to push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and fun in new and unexpected ways," said Ben Gadbois, Global President and COO, Spin Master Ltd. "This year, we are launching our most advanced robot with the Meccano M.A.X. Robot, we're ready to surprise the world with the next evolution of Hatchimals and an amazing new version of the classic baby doll with Luvabella. We are committed to making the world more fun and these are just a few shining examples from Spin Master's 2017 line."

They've detailed it all in their extensive 2017 Portfolio, which we will break down here:

Robotics and Modern Classics

Meccano M.A.X. Robot - Ages 10+ $149.99

For children who like to tinker and toy, Spin Master has acquired STEM-based compact Meccano and they are bringing building sets and more to children so that they can learn and grow. Their newest robot is the Meccano M.A.X. Robot. It is the most advanced you can find anywhere, using AI learning and customizable programming. Your kid will have a personal assistant of sorts and you can customize it to do whatever it is that you want.

Meccano MeccaSpider - Ages 10+ $99.99

Hatchimals and Beyond

Since Hatchimals launched in October 2016, the world has never been the same. There have been millions of happy kids who woke up to their Hatchimals eggs. Now "Hatchifans" have been clamoring for more - and in 2017, they will get better, faster, more high-tech Hatchimals.

Hatchimals Colleggtibles - Ages 5+ 

Hatchimals Colleggtibles take over from where the traditional Hatchimal left off. This version is smaller and more child-friendly because they are able to control the hatching process. Children have to rub the egg over their hearts in order to start the cracking process. Once it changes from purple to pink, one of over 70 new Hatchimals will be there - complete with a set of gorgeous glittery wings.

You might see a new version of older Hatchimals or you'll see one of the new types. Once hatched, your child will be able to grow the Hatchimal as they play with it.

Since they are smaller, they also cost less, which means more people can afford them.

Collectibles

Collectibles and trading cards have always been part of the toy trend. Usually, they will go away for a few years and then they come back with a vengeance, bringing with it the care, storing, and displaying of large collections. Some people will keep those collections for the rest of their lives.

Spin Master has decided to be ahead of the curve for the next set of collectibles and create sports-themed collectibles that boys and girls will love. These mini bikes will do tricks and are perfect for trading to get the best line-up.
