BlogOn Toy Awards winners announced

Published on: 25th September 2018

Over 200 entries were received, and each one was judged by bloggers from all over the UK.

The Kids@Play Harry Potter Real Talking Sorting Hat won the Blogger’s Choice Award at this year’s event.

The BlogOn Toys Christmas Event, which took place on 16th September at Hotel Football in Manchester, saw the voting and winners announced of the 2nd BlogOn Toy Awards.

The BlogOn Toy Awards are made up of 15 categories, plus a Blogger’s Choice Award which is given to the toy with the most votes overall.

Laura Seaton, BlogOn founder, commented: “We have been amazed by the huge number of entries and want to say a big thank you to all the toy companies who took part. Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed the judging process and selecting their favourites and in turn make the definitive list of top toys for Christmas 2018 as chosen by parent bloggers/influencers. We can now say without doubt that following another successful Toy Awards it will certainly return next year.”

Laura added: “Our first dedicated event for toys has been a real success, and we hope it will now become a must-attend event for both bloggers and toy brands.”
