Here are some final odds and ends from the NYC Toy fair 2008, these aren’t necessarily DIY/Science – but things I thought were interesting, bizarre or a little of both … (pictured here, all year weather sled, you attach large ice blocks for summer use)… keep clicking for more!
Reissue of the first pogo stick.
Incredible packing for artist’s vinyl collectables.
Toy-kits made from cork!
Mosaic art, Ya rly.
Amazing wood toys from Germany.
Some commenters say this is more educational than it was presented – so maybe it’s not so bad.
Eyeclops microscope! Seen here on MAKE before too!
Laser cut wood animals and origami.
Extremely detailed chess sets.
Hand casting kits.
Geoplates building sets.
Puzzle in a bottle, and it’s a pirate treasure map!
Giant “Nightmare before Christmas” replica.
PC based comic creator (Speed Racer comic assets included).
Handmade Goth dolls.

As for the bicycle not being educational…I’m not so sure. Teaching kids from a young age to use alternative modes of transportation, as well as promoting healthy choices, seems like a great idea!
err… I’m not sure a stationary bicycle qualifies as ‘transportation’ : ). Maybe there is more to it than pedaling though, otherwise I’m not sure why smart is even in the name. Seems surprising to win, given all the other posts from the show.
That bike connects to a TV and has a cartridge system. The cartridges have edutainment material on which you interact with both with a set of buttons and by riding the bike.
