Announcing the Top Toys for Christmas 2014!

Christmas is just around the corner, and with it the pressure of buying Christmas presents the children will actually enjoy… and will still enjoy well past Boxing Day. Like you, we’re a little tired of endless “Top Toys” lists that feel like they’ve been crafted by the toy companies themselves, so were delighted to be among the first to see this year’s top toys put through their paces by actual real live children, thanks to those lovely people over at ToyTesters.TV (more on them later).

In our roundup of the Top Toys for Christmas 2014, we’ve included the ToyTesters.TV Toy Awards Accolade Winners – in other words, the top toys as voted by the children themselves for Accolades like “Best Pocket Money Spend” and “Coolest Toy”. Over the next few days we’ll add our favourite Runners Up, plus the winners from all the different toy categories. You’ll find some really cool interactive toys, educational toys and games, make-and-do / craft activities, toys which encourage imaginative play, and a few seriously cool racing toys that I guarantee you’ll want to keep for yourself.

Enjoy, and if you love the list as much as we do, please share with other mums, dads, nannies, grannies, and anyone else who might appreciate a heads up on what to buy the kids this Christmas!

Massive Congratulations to all the winners and finalists. And a huge heartfelt thank you to the Toy industry, press, colleagues and partners who have been absolutely amazing. We have been overwhelmed with the response to our awards and the support we’ve had. Thank you so much to everyone who picked up the phone for a chat, sent supportive emails and made this all possible. The whole thing was a huge team effort and we should all be really proud of what we’ve achieved. We’ll be back next year with an even bigger bang and look forward to solidifying the ToyTesters.tv Awards as one of the most acknowledged platforms for toy industry recognition; the awards where children vote. See you all next year!

Wow! The first ever ToyTesters.tv Awards! It’s been absolutely fantastic. Huge congratulations to everyone who has taken part, the toy companies, the Toy Testers and the ToyTesters.tv team. I was continually astounded by the thought and care taken at every stage of the process; this brand new format where children review toys is revolutionary and hasn’t been done before.

We’re already planning what’s coming next and I’m looking forward to the awards in 2015!
