They get to rock the planet with the newest LEGO, action figures, and more, at the American International Toy Fair. It hits once a year in New York City and packs in enough toys to amaze even Santa. The latest Toy Fair was from Feb. 16th-18th, 2004, and here's the 411 on what's hot:

Barbie and Ken Breakup News!

The biggest thing in the toy world happened just before Toy Fair 2004 when, on Feb 13th, Barbie and Ken hit splitsville. Mattel announced the breakup, but didn't give details on why except to say that Barbie is going to get back to her roots and start dating again. The new doll in Barbie's life is an Australian surfer dude named Blaine.

Bratz Kick-It To #1 Spot
