The 109th Annual International Toy Fair is running through today at the Javits Center, and we've got the scoop on some of the best new toys and games that'll be hitting stores this year, from apps come to life to new takes on classic board games. Here are our favorite finds from this year's convention:

Lego Monster Fighters: The Vampire Hearse
August, $34.99
Everyone's favorite building blocks get an awesome new line, Monster Fighters, which pits classic monsters such as vampires and Frankenstein against some oddball hunters. While there's a bunch of sharp-looking sets, the Vampire Hearse (complete with a Lego coffin) is a must-own.

G.I. Joe Movie Action Figures: Roadblock
Summer, $7.99
With "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" hitting theaters in June, there's a whole new line of action figures coming out featuring both the stars of the film and some new versions of classic characters. For our money, you can't go wrong with Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson's Roadblock figure.

Serven' Surprises Cook 'n Serve Kitchen & Table
August, $79.99
Parents and children alike will fall in love with this multi-tasking toy. Beyond the obvious kitchen playset aspect, the Mattel toy can act as a storage unit - the entire trunk is hollow - and, when it's cleared off, you've got a perfect pint-sized table for serving lunch.

The Game of Life zAPPed
Out now, $24.99
I'm going to crib the cliche from the press release: The zAPPed Game of Life gives you a new spin on the classic board game. Download the app and plop your iPad in the middle of the board, and you've got your spinner as well as a bevy of games and vids (courtesy of "America's Funniest Home Videos").

K'Nex Angry Birds 'T Minus Never' Building Set
Fall, $29.99
Your favorite app comes to life thanks to K'Nex, which is bringing the intense world of bird launching to the building-block genre. This set includes the red and white birds, plus three pigs to knock over. And you can win the golden egg!
