ToyAward at Spielwarenmesse: jury nominates 12 products

  • 271 companies enter 491 products for the ToyAward
  • Announcement of winners at opening ceremony on 28.1.2014

New products are the stars at every fair. This is why Spielwarenmesse eG presents the ToyAward to pay tribute to and spotlight a number of outstanding new products. A jury of eleven experts selects the ToyAward in four categories for specific age groups:

  • Baby&Infant (0–2 years)
  • PreSchool (3–5 years)
  • SchoolKids (6–10 years)
  • Teenager&Family (11 years plus)

This year 271 companies (+19.4 %) entered as many as 491 products (+29.2 %) for the ToyAward 2014 – more than ever before. The jury of educators, market researchers, international trade representatives and a toy safety expert chose twelve of them as nominations. These products convinced the jury in terms of originality, safety, play fun, workmanship & quality, ease of understanding of product concept and prospects of success on the market. The winners of the four product categories will be announced at the opening ceremony of the 65th Spielwarenmesse on 28.1.2014.
