Just announced are The Toy Industry Association‘s finalists for the coveted 2017 Toy of the Year. 14 categories of finalists have been chosen from over 700 nominees by a pool of 25 judges including toy and play experts, retailers, academics and journalists.
The winners will be revealed at a special industry event on February 17, 2017, to be held on the Intrepid Air and Space Museum in NYC. The winning line-up is traditionally displayed at the annual New York Toy Fair also held in February. See links to our past coverage below.
In the meantime Adrianna and I are thrilled to see so many of our personal favorites on the list. We’re also very happy to see an Action Figure of the Year category has been added to the mix. We congratulate all the creators and companies honored.
