TDmonthly Specialty Toys Report: WINNERS

TDmonthly Announces 60 Award Recipients for 2007

By Julie L. Jones

It's finally time to announce the deserving recipients of TDmonthly Magazine's 2007 toy awards! Over the past month and a half, we've narrowed down the list of nominees from more than 300 great toys and games to an exclusive 60 that have earned one of four major awards: Top Toy, Top Seller, Innovations and Classic.

None of the manufacturers who were nominated or won paid a submission fee to be considered for an award; nominations were based on retailer recommendation, high reviews by TDmonthly roundtable reviewers or experts and/or editorial recommendation.

We strictly limited the number of awards given. High on our list of criteria was retailer satisfaction with a manufacturer's policies (except for Top Seller awards). Also evaluated were price point versus quality, play value, safety, and appeal to both children and parents. Finally, a crucial factor was the success of each toy within the specialty market, or its potential to perform well in specialty stores.
