The 2007 TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report

Annual Report for Consumers Debuts in October

The 2007 TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report will be offered to the general public, retailers and the press in mid-October 2007. Its mission is to help consumers make informed buying decisions for the holidays and to introduce them to companies and products they will not find in mass-market outlets.

Each product has been selected for the Report using one or more of the following criteria: inclusion in a TDmonthly top-10 article based on retail sales or tradeshow recognition, recommendation by a specialty retailer, inclusion in a TDmonthly Staff Picks article, and review by TDmonthly staff, experts and consumers.

At the end of September, TDmonthly will announce the finalists for the TDmonthly Top Toy 2007 awards. Winners will be announced when the report is published in mid-October. Awards will include:

TDmonthly Top Toy 2007 (20 only)

TDmonthly Top Seller 2007 (20 or fewer)

TDmonthly Innovations 2007 (10 or fewer)

TDmonthly Classic (10 or fewer)

Winners will be able to publicize their awards with an official TDmonthly logo.
