First Nominees for TDmonthly Report and Awards

More Nominees to Come; Finalists Named in July


TDmonthly Magazine has gone through hundreds of toys to come up with this first list of nominees for our 2008/2009 Specialty Toys Report. We've made our choices based on quality, innovation, reports from retailers and consumer reviews.

If you've been nominated, please be sure to fill out the online submission form we sent you via email so your product can be included in TDmonthly's 2008/2009 Specialty Toys Report. Nominees are automatically entered into the running for a TDmonthly Top Toy 2008 award. There is NO FEE to submit for the Specialty Toys Report or for the TDmonthly Top Toys awards. (See last year's nominees and winners.)

Did you miss the submission deadline of June 13? We may have nominated you anyway, so please check your email and read the list below.

Or, if you have something new coming for 2009, please fill out your online submission form and mail us a sample by June 30 so we can consider you for our TDmonthly Top Toy 2009 earlybird awards.
