Voting has opened for this year’s Toy Of The Year (TOTY) awards, and not only can you use your voice to choose the best toys of 2017, you also get the chance to win every toy in a single category. Awesome, right? But it gets even better.
The TOTY Awards support the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF), which helps bring the magic of toys and the gift of play to millions of kids in need around the world.
All TOTY finalists are asked to send toy samples to the Toy Industry Association for promotional purposes throughout the holiday season. After February, the samples are donated to the Toy Industry Foundation to benefit children who might not otherwise enjoy the chance to play with a new toy.
