Yesterday, children gathered from all over the country to find out which toys and games they’d voted the best this year at the ToyTesters.tv Awards 2015.

The event was held at the Sky Superscreen, Cineworld, The O2 in London and hosted by children’s TV presenter Nigel Clarke.

The day saw children entertained by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mascots, a balloon artist and a series of films starring themselves (the Toy Testers) and the toys.

An expert panel of Head Toy Testers cast the winning votes to decide which out of two toys voted the best by children, in a series of categories, scooped the award.

“Toytesters.tv is all about children’s opinions and once again there have been some surprises this year," said Gemma Gallagher, founder of Toytesters.tv.

"Children’s opinions are very different to adults when it comes to toys and their votes are the ones that really count. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this experience to children across the UK. Not only has it been an amazing journey but it gives children the opportunity to increase their confidence and be part of something fun. I’d like to offer our congratulations to all the worthy winners.”
