David Ross, founder of Dad’s Choice Awards said: “When you look through the list of winners, there is a fantastic mix of timeless classics and new innovations. Every winner should feel proud to have made it through the rigorous testing and tough critics – the dads and of course their children. We’ve had everything from tech toys, board games, action toys to classic cars and models. Apps and educational toys were very popular and reflect how many children have tablets and phones. We appreciate all the manufacturers who entered and hope those who’ve won will join us in celebrating their success. Hopefully it will inspire other dads who are struggling for inspiration for Christmas Day.”
