As voted for by attending journalists, Character Options' Pokémon Collectables have been crowned the overall winner of the show's award, followed by Golden Bear's Bush Baby property and Spin Master's Hatchimals line.

Journalists from broadcast, national consumer and trade titles all cast their votes over the new toys for 2018, whittling down from more than 250 companies in attendance at this year's Toy Fair.
