Toys Named by Experts and Kid Testers as Must-Have Gifts this Year
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KidKraft, the global leader in innovative, high-quality products “Made for Make Believe,” announces four new prestigious toy awards, setting the scene for a magical holiday season. Recognized for imaginative play, KidKraft play sets, kitchens and dollhouses received accolades from the National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA), Tillywig Toy & Media Awards, Parent’s Choice Awards, and Good Housekeeping Best Toy Awards, along with a nomination for the Toy Association’s 2020 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards.
“It’s an honor to have our kitchens, dollhouses and play sets recognized as some of this year’s must-have toys,” said Susan Russo, VP of Product & Brand Marketing for KidKraft. “We are committed to producing well-crafted products that inspire imaginative play, and we’re proud to help parents create that wow moment for their kids this gift-giving season.”
Taking a spot among Good Housekeeping’s Best Toys Awards is the Mosaic Magnetic Kitchen—a chic golden-accented space that lil’ chefs can personalize with included magnets. The Mosaic Magnetic Kitchen received another win from the Parents’ Choice Foundation®, along with the Bianca City Life Dollhouse, a loft-style design where dolls can live, work and play. The NAPPA Awards honor both the Let’s Pretend Shopkeeper Stand, an adorable pop-up shop where entrepreneurship play is boss, and the Sweet Meadow Horse Stable that extends the fab farmhouse trend to the barn (horse included). A Tillywig Toy Award was bestowed upon the Emily Dollhouse for its impressive attention to detail through cheery, modern décor and architecture.
In addition, the KidKraft World of Eric Carle™ Very Busy Activity Cube, a five-sided exploration toy, has been selected as a finalist for the Toy Association’s 2020 Toy of the Year Awards in the Infant/Toddler category. The esteemed TOTY awards are presented annually honoring the top toys, games and properties of the previous year. Winners of the TOTY awards are selected through a voting system, chosen by consumers, toy retailers, press and Toy Association members. KidKraft fans are encouraged to join in the fun and support KidKraft by voting at ToyAwards.org between now and January 5, 2020. Winners will be announced at the annual TOTY Awards ceremony held in New York City on February 21, 2020.
