Expert jury nominates innovations for Spielwarenmesse ToyAward

  • Digital ToyAward Special Area with all nominees
  • Winners to be announced on Spielwarenmesse Digital on 2 February

Outstanding product innovations are among the drivers of sales in the trade. The Spielwarenmesse ToyAward offers buyers important guidance in range selection. Every year, the awards recognise innovations that, on account of their especially creative product ideas and high quality of manufacture, have great potential for success. The ToyAward, one of the most important prizes in the global toy industry, is also a key indicator of quality for consumers.

The competition for the highly regarded prize was open to all exhibitors at the Spielwarenmesse. The innovations that they submitted have undergone an initial digital preselection process. Here, an expert jury has evaluated all applications on the criteria of originality, play fun, comprehensibility of the product concept and prospect of retail success, and narrowed down the selection. At a meeting in Nuremberg, members of the jury each nominated three products in the new Sustainability segment and in the categories PreSchool (3-6 years), SchoolKids (6-10 years), Teenagers & Adults (10 years upwards) and Startup. There were no nominees this year in the Baby & Infant (0-3 years) category. In addition to the requirements from the preselection, further criteria of safety and workmanship & quality were taken into account in this evaluation.

The winners will be announced as part of the Digital Opening, which will be streamed on Spielwarenmesse Digital from 9 am on 2 February. All of the nominated innovations can be found on the new platform, in the digital ToyAward Special Area.
