RIDGEWOOD, N.J., Feb. 25, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Toy Fair is the largest trade show in the Western Hemisphere -- and Toy Fair '08 was the biggest one yet. More than 1,500 exhibitors from 30 countries showcased their toy and entertainment products at Toy Fair '08 in New York City.

Barbie and the Cabbage Patch Kids made some noise at this year's show. They also had some great new computer based games and gooey toys for the boys. The Toy Fair was THE place to be for retailers who wanted the hottest products on their shelves in the next few months.

And for consumers, it's an ideal time to learn about what the toy manufacturers have in the pipeline. Elizabeth Werner got a behind the scenes look at the show, and has picked some of her top finds to show off.

Elizabeth has been immersed in the toy industry for years. A frequent host on QVC, where she regularly brings great children's products to the attention of parents, she is now CTO at iVillage.com, where she writes monthly articles on toys. She is also a frequent guest on The View and routinely speaks to the media at toy fairs and other toy industry events.
