The Play Forum is a collection of voices from parents and people in the toy and children’s entertainment industries. Read what’s on their minds, and join the conversation.

The entire Time To Play team gathered today in NYC to unveil our annual Spring Most Wanted Toys List! The 2012 list represents the toys our editorial team thinks will be the most popular, most fun — and Most Wanted this summer. Over the past year, Time To Play’s editors looked at and reviewed thousands of toys, and the ones that made the list are the best of the best and the toys that everyone will be talking about in the following weeks.

The list includes great outdoor items like the Air Storm Z-X Cross Bow from Zing Toys, the FlashRider 360 from Razor and the Little Tikes Sandy Lagoon Waterpark from MGA Entertainment.

Summer means more that just having fun outside. My favorite summer tradition is the bombastic, over-the-top, big-budget movies and this summer looks likes it’s going to be one of the hottest box offices of all time. The Most Wanted list included two awesome looking movie toys – The Amazing Spider-Man Electronic Figure from Hasbro and The Dark Knight Rises: The Bat from Mattel plus the Imaginext DC Super Friends Batcave from Fisher-Price.

Even my favorite, video games, got a mention in the list with the latest Skylanders figures from Activision appearing.
