NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Hundreds of thousands of innovative playthings were unveiled at the opening of the 111th American International Toy Fair – the largest toy marketplace ever held in the Western Hemisphere – taking place in New York City.

Upwards of 1,150 toy companies – 285 of which are exhibiting for the very first time – are slated to unveil the year’s hottest trends in toys, games and youth entertainment products in front of an estimated 14,000 global buyers.

Toy Fair opened at 10 a.m. Sunday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring singer Alicia Keys, co-creator of the interactive children’s app, The Journals of Mama Mae & LeeLee. Immediately following the show opener, trade guests surged the exhibit hall and kicked off four, jam-packed days of trend-spotting, networking and order-writing. Playthings ordered at Toy Fair will be appearing in toy stores through the holiday shopping season.

Providing media and trade guests with the inside scoop on which toys will top wish lists this year, TIA experts will reveal the biggest trends of 2014 at the annual “Toy Trends Tea” on Monday.
