Toy Companies are Invited to Submit Products for Consideration by April 14


NEW YORK, NY | April 4, 2023 — Toy and game companies are invited to submit their most creative and innovative products to be voted on by leading influencers with millions of social media followers and monthly views. Chosen products will be named to the official “Best of Spring & Summer 2023 Influencer Choice List,” presented by The Toy Association and powered by Clamour, producers of the largest industry summit from professional online video influencers.

“Toy and game companies can use this platform to gain exposure and recognition from some of the most influential voices in the digital space,” said Adrienne Appell, executive vice president of marketing communications at The Toy Association. “Being selected for the list will not only bring attention to your brand, but also drive sales for the top toys that families are looking for this season.”


The influencers from the Clamour network who will be casting their votes are required to have a minimum monthly following of at least one million views on their main platform and a social reach of more than half a million followers. Influencers will review each submitted product’s details (including photos and physical product, if available), before voting for their favorites. Voting will take place online from April 26 to May 5. No employees or representatives of Clamour or The Toy Association will have any role in determining the selected products. 

The cost to nominate a product is $249 for Toy Association members and $299 for non-members. There is a fee of $149 for each additional product submitted by the same company. The “Best of Spring & Summer 2023 Influencer Choice List” will be unveiled in mid-May and the deadline for submissions is Friday, April 14, 2022 at midnight (Eastern).
