Novelty refers to the quality of being new, or novel. It refers to something that is unusual or innovative. A novelty is something that is not seen before, something that may evoke surprise in people. The quality of being new and fresh itself can be called as novelty.
A novelty in a smaller context may refer to a mass-produced item like a trinket.
Though the word may be thought to have an objective aspect to it, it's essence lies in the subjective thinking of people.
The word novelty can also refer to one of the initial steam locomotive trains which was supposed to participate at the Rainhill Trials in the year 1829.
It is also a component of a legal test done to establish if a particular invention can be patented.
