WOODBURY - While Christmas shopping may be more than a few months away, the Javits Center in Manhattan was ahead of schedule by hosting a toy convention over the last few days.

Beth Whitehouse, from Newsday, says that toy companies are app happy this year. More companies are incorporating apps to help enhance the board game experience.

Other popular internet sensations, such as Angry Orange, will be debuting in stuffed animal and key chain forms.

Most of the toys will be released later this year.
