Toy Fair Spotlight: BanDai, TOMY Toys & Little Pim


As we come to the end of Toy Fair Week 2014, I am super excited to share fun new toys from BanDai, TOMY & Little Pim!

I hope you enjoyed my week devoted to the Toy Fair! I had an awesome time showing all the new fun stuff from Mattel, Hasbro and yesterday’s combination of Mega Bloks, Melissa & Doug and TMNT. There is still so much that I want to share but there are only so many blog posts I can do! I am excited to announce that I will be reviewing and previewing some amazing toys for the kids from Crayola and Manhattan Toy Company. I’m not sure who is more excited, me or the boys! :) Stay Tuned!


Remember my quick vlog from the Toy Fair? I had just seen come from the BanDai booth which was filled with all kinds of awesome that I am going to share with you today. The BanDai booth had all kinds of fun stuff that I love including a brand new line that focuses on Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz being the focus of a new doll line! Love that!


There are also brand new Tamogochi pets that do all kinds of fun things in addition to the toy that we all used to play with! They have apps now and they talk to each other, its a really cool way to bring back the device we were all obsessed with as tweens!


BanDai is probably most known for their Power Ranger line. I gotta admit, this was my favorite too! I was uber obsessed with the power rangers when they came out way back when. I always wanted Kimberly and Tommy to get married! It was like the biggest thing ever when I was growing up. But I digress.

A lot of these toys work seamlessly with each other too, there are keys that make the power ranger figures do different things, and you can change parts on each figurine too! It’s a great way for the kids to get creative. Check out how cool these figures are!

TOMY toys

I had a particularly good time at the Tomy toys booth because they had so many good things all under one roof! Pokemon, John Deere, and my favorite of all Chuggington. (I can’t even type that without singing the theme song!)

Little Pim

I’ve heard so many great things about Little Pim before so it was nice to get to learn more about the brand in their booth. If you are unfamiliar with Little Pim it is language learning apps, dvds, books for kids. The kids can learn the language of your choice, and they can learn it with your chosen method! I need to get this for the kids for sure.


Did you have a Tamagotchi pet? Were you into the power rangers? Pokemon? Which language would you teach your child first?

  2. I totally won one of the Little Pim DVDs from Growing Up Madison’s giveaway recently and my girls did love it and would look into more for them now, too. Thank you again for sharing the toy Fair with us this past week and really loved seeing all the newest and hottest toys here. Have a great weekend, Nellie!! :)

  3.’s strange to see my childhood toys “all grown up.” Power Rangers, Tamogochi and Pokemon! Still around!
    And of course, Dorothy is timeless. I like the doll. Scarlet loves to walk around the house with a stuffed dog in a basket. Toto!

  4. Loved your recaps of Toy Fair and so fun to get to see you there this year! Little Pim is one of my faves. Nia was so passionate about learning she tried to watch on her own and snapped one of the Spanish DVDs which they kindly replaced. They’ve also been great for the whole family (me included!) as we brush up on our Spanish for our upcoming trip to Puerto Rico.

  5. I would love to be able to teach my future children a second language. My SIL is pretty fluent in Japanese. I took 6 years of French and am now trying to learn some Italian. It is going very slowly!

  7. I loved Power Rangers and Pokemon when the boys were younger! We had many of the toys/stuffed things and watched Power Rangers a lot – Dino Thunder was my favorite!!

  8. Pookah is obsessed with the power rangers. He has one power ranger toy that he got for Christmas. He’s obsessed.

  9. I’d personally really like to educate our foreseeable future children an extra language. Our SIL is actually rather fluent throughout Japanese people. I required 6 many years connected with France in addition to am at this point trying to learn a few German. It really is proceeding very little by little!
