For the last 117 years, Toy Fair has taken place in New York City, but like everything else this year-- it's canceled.

Our Toy Insider Laurie Schacht said the fun will continue as manufacturers still plan to get their toys on shelves this year. She gave Fox 4 a sneak peek at some of the products before they've been revealed to the public.
