0 Toy Verdict awards.png, a leading toy review service owned and operated by Kids Brand Insight, has revealed the results of The Toy Verdict Awards 2015.

“The sheer quality of the products submitted has made our testing and judging process very difficult indeed," said Steve Reece, CEO of Kids Brand Insight.

"We take a robust approach to testing based on our having conducted hundreds of research groups/playtesting sessions for many of the biggest players in the toy business, so it’s been a very involved and intense process to get to this list of Winners and Finalists – all of whom truly merit the Award.

"During the course of testing/judging, we were able to give product feedback which led to several companies tweaking products that were just about to ship to make them better/solve problems, so aside from the winners we announce today we hope to have made a further positive impact for those who worked with The Toy Verdict in 2015.”
