2020 “TOY FAIR EVERYWHERE INFLUENCER FAVORITES”
UNVEILED BY TOY ASSOCIATION & CLAMOUR
Influencers Reveal Top Toy Picks from Exhibitors at Virtual Market Weeks
New York, NY – September 14, 2020 | Getting a head start on your holiday toy shopping and looking for inspiration? The Toy Association and Clamour today announced the 2020 Toy Fair Everywhere/Clamour Influencer Choice List Favorites, which highlights the top toys and games from Toy Fair Everywhere exhibitors as voted on by leading toy and family content creators. Shoppers can browse the list to discover tried-and-true toys – from top-notch educational games and eco-conscious products, to innovative toy designs and reimagined classic brands. The announcement kicks off Toy Fair Everywhere’s fall market week (September 14-20), known globally as the digital market event for the toy and play community.
Hundreds of top-tier digital influencers were invited to vote on products submitted by Toy Fair Everywhere exhibitors. Influencers were required to have at least one million monthly views on their main platform and a social reach of more than 500,000. They reviewed product details, photos, and physical samples (when available) before voting for their favorites.
“Our partnership with Clamour gave Toy Fair Everywhere exhibitors a unique opportunity to get their brands in front of digital content creators from platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok,” said Kimberly Carcone, vice president of market events at The Toy Association. “More importantly, the initiative shined a spotlight on the passion and creativity of the entire toy community ahead of the all-important fourth quarter, with hundreds of products tried and tested by top-tier family influencers before being narrowed down to the final 30 favorites on the Influencer Choice List.”
