US: PlayMonster secures five Toy of the Year nominations

‘In the toy industry, it’s an honour to have just one TOTY finalist, and it’s exceptional and exciting to have five in one year,’ says PlayMonster’s Bob Wann.

PlayMonster has been nominated for five Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards this year, spanning four different categories.

The firm garnered nominations in categories including Activity Toy of the Year for My Fairy Garden, Game of the Year for Yeti in My Spaghetti, and two nods in Specialty Toy of the Year for Automoblox and Perplexus Q-bot.

In addition, PlayMonster’s licensed toy line Wonder Crew is also a finalist for Rookie Toy Company of the Year.

Finalists for this year’s awards were determined by members of the toy industry, including retail buyers, designers, journalists and bloggers.

“In the toy industry, it’s an honour to have just one TOTY finalist, and it’s exceptional and exciting to have five in one year,” said Bob Wann, chief PlayMonster at PlayMonster.

“It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team as we worked tirelessly to transition in the marketplace from Patch Products to PlayMonster.”
