Winners of BlogOn Toy Awards announced

Published on: 5th October 2021

With more entries than ever before, votes were made by both in person and virtual judges, who awarded multiple Blogger’s Choice winners.

The BlogOn Toy Awards employed a hybrid voting system that included virtual voters using live video demonstrations and in person voting at the BlogOn conference held last weekend. The organiser says this led to the highest ever number of voters and some very interesting results.

The conference took place on 2nd October at the Coppid Beach Hotel in Bracknell, showcasing the best toys available this year.

The BlogOn Toy Awards are made up of 16 categories and a Blogger’s Choice Award which is given to the toy or toys with the most votes overall. However, this category divided voters.

Founder Laura Seaton commented: “We have never had multiple winners for the Bloggers Choice Award and it just goes to show the quality of toys available to purchase this year.”

Laura commented: “It was great to be back in person for this year’s awards, and being able to allow virtual voting as well gave the entries even more exposure.

Not only did we have more entries than ever before, but we also had more influencers voting. It has been great to showcase the products from both small businesses and larger companies. We want to say a big thank you to all the toy companies who took part this year and in particular those who attended the event and helped make it such a fun experience.”

Nathaniel Southworth, MD KAP Toys, added: ‘“Nothing beats talking and demo’ing product to an interested and engaged audience, and real heartfelt feedback is brilliant. To come away with multiple awards voted for by the BlogOn group is testament to the teams at Toikido and YuMe toys who give us such fantastic products to work with.”
