"Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed the judging process and selecting their favourites and in turn make the definitive list of top toys for Christmas 2018 as chosen by parent bloggers/influencers and we can now say without doubt that following another successful Toy Awards it will certainly return next year.

“Our first dedicated event for toys has been a real success and we hope it will now become a must-attend event for both bloggers and toy brands.”

Unsurprisingly, collectible toys featured strongly in the shortlisted entries this year – with ‘surprise’ toys that hatch (Rainbocorns) or emerge from foam-filled pods (Playfoam Pals Wild Friends) stealing much of the limelight.
