Toy of the Year Awards Are Here With The Child Crowned Winner

The Oscars of the toy world have come and gone as a variety of amazing toys have been labeled Toy of the Year. Covering a variety of categories, the Toy Association ended the award show but crowing Hasbro's Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Animatronic Edition figure as Toy of the Year! 2020 was a big year for The Mandalorian, so it is not surprising that The Child got his time in the spotlight after his toy debut in early 2020. The figure featured over 25 sounds and motions straight from the Disney+ Star Wars series, from giggles and sound effects to moving ears and eyes. This was one might toy that dominated the market for collectors, and now it has the award to prove it. Some of the other Toy of the Year winners include:

The winner for this award was Story Time Chess and the Original Spawn Remastered Comic and Figure that took Spawn fans and Kickstarter by storm from McFarlane Toys. The figure is not even in most collectors' hands yet, so that is just saying how excited fans are to get this figure. Which of these toys do you own? It seems Star Wars is just as popular as ever this year, and we can not wait to see what the 2022 Toy of the Year Awards will hold.
