TOTY 2014An exciting few months lie ahead as the toy industry prepares for the 2014 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards!

  • Now through Friday, October 11th, members of the toy industry are invited to nominate toys, games, and licensed properties for consideration in the 2014 Toy of the Year awards.

  • From late October through early November, nomination committees comprised of play experts, journalists, academics, retailers, and other toy experts for each category will consider which products and properties will be selected for the official TOTY ballots.

  • On November 25th, a national press event held in the heart of New York City will introduce a fantastic list of product recommendations just in time for the Holiday 2013 shopping season. The press conference will also mark the launch of FIVE ballots – one each for Consumers, Retailers (mass and specialty), Media, and TIA members; each ballot will factor into the determination of the TOTY 2014 winners.

  • And on Saturday evening, February 15th, “Toy Fair Week” will kick off with the TOTY awards ceremony and Toy Industry Hall of Fame induction at the modern, stunning Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.
