Criteria for entry is that toy must be released in the UK and available for sale between January 1st 2018 and before December 31st 2018. However, they may have been on sale before this date. They should all be suitable for children aged 0 to 16.

Winners of the Dad’s Choice Awards 2018 will be announced this November, ahead of the key selling period.

David Ross, organiser of the event, said: “We have had some fantastic entries already this year and our Dad testers are already trying out some of the toys. In our sixth year, we have recruited more Dad testers than ever before. We have families with babies through to teenagers, who cannot wait to get stuck in to put these fabulous toys, games, apps and outdoor toys through their paces.

“It’s looking like our best ever year for entries, so we’d encourage any other manufacturers who haven’t entered yet to submit their entries as soon as possible.”
