Big Toy Fair Begins Monday in New York City

By  | 

Toy designers, manufacturers and retailers are gathered in New York City for the country's largest toy fair. This year's American International Toy Fair features a punk-rock teddy bear complete with a spiked collar, pin through the ear and a Mohawk haircut.

Achy Breaky Toys is also marketing dolls with names like Johnny Voodoo, Swear Bears and Darla Doom.

A toy demonstrator who calls himself "Doctor Sea Monkey" says he's hoping a whole new generation of kids will discover the little creatures sold on the back pages of comic books years ago.

"Sea Monkeys" are actually brine shrimp, whose eggs can be freeze-dried and then hatched in water.
