First-Ever TDmonthly Awards and Report Now Available

300+ Nominees, 60 Award Winners Highlighted

By Alison Marek & Julie L. Jones

Retailers: Answer your customers' questions about the best and best-selling specialty toys and decide what to order in 2008 by consulting one simple document: the 2007 TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report.

Consumers: Check out the 2007 TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report to learn about some of the most exciting, innovative, enduring and high-quality toys in the specialty market, as well as the companies that make them.

TDmonthly Magazine's editors picked 300+ of the most promising products in the specialty marketplace based on consumer reviews, surveys of specialty retailers, and our own constant searches down the aisles of six trade shows in 2007.

The result is a collection of incredible toys and games, including dolls that encourage kids to contribute to charity, plush toys that transform into blankets, and sleek wooden cars that can be pulled apart and snapped together in surprising combinations.

WHERE IT'S MADE, HOW IT'S TESTED

The Report contains descriptions of toys (including pricing), safety and company profiles submitted by the manufacturers themselves, retailer comments on how well the toys do in their stores, consumer reviews and TDmonthly staff evaluations.

All of the toys in the report were also nominated for TDmonthly’s first-ever toy awards (see winners below).

A PDF of the 2007 TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report - Industry Version is only $9.95 (includes SKUs and Wholesale Pricing for most products). We are also offering a 2nd version for Consumers and the Press — for just $5.95 (excludes SKUs and Wholesale Pricing).
