The results of the eleventh annual Rainbow Toy Awards were announced at a ceremony live online at www.rainbowawards.co.uk on Friday 1st November at 10.00am.
Entries for the 2019 Rainbow Toy Awards were received at the Rainbow Toy Awards HQ and each one was scrutinised by the team of toy testers. Each child tester gave their feedback to a parent or carer to report back by form. The toys were ranked from 1-10 for play value, longevity, packaging, build quality and value for money. The testers also gave their overall impression, offering a valuable comment alongside the given score.
