The Designer Toy Award Voting is Now Open!

The finalists for the 7th Annual Designer Toy Awards (DTAs) have been announced and Public Voting has begun! To see the full list of finalist please visit

This year we have increased the number of public finalists to 12 - to give a larger pool for the public to vote from.

We'd like to thank the nomination committees, who have worked tirelessly to whittle down the 100’s of nominees to these top choices.

Pro Committee: Huck Gee, Dov Kelmer, Kirby Kerr, Benny Kline, Travis Lykins, Gary Rozanski, John Stokes, Vincent Yu, Keegan Rooney, Kyle Kirwan, David Schlesinger and Jason Freeny. Public: Justin Cheah , Lee Funai, Ketha Insomphou, Rob Lumino, and Katherine Park

Together, our committees have created our Shortlists of 2017! Congratulations to all the finalists! Voting in the DTA public categories is easy as cake. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Designer Toy Awards website and log in or create a new account. If you have an account but have forgotten the password, you can retrieve it here.

  2. Go to the categories page.

  3. Vote once in each of the six awards under Public Voting.

Tada! You've voted! Simple as that.

Public voting remains open until Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017, 12pm(noon) est.

Please note that voting more than once in each category, even if you've created multiple accounts, is grounds for all your votes being removed and, potentially, the party you're voting for being disqualified.
