I’ve been attending Toy Fair for a few years now as a member of the press and it’s been great sharing the latest and greatest action figure and science fiction or super-hero related movie properties with you on the website. If you are somehow just joining us as a reader of the posts, you might want to check out some of the historical coverages via THIS LINK. It’s been a blast. Now the other day a notice arrived informing the press about the nominations for the 2017 Toy Of The Year and all the categories that are making it up this year. I cast my vote and what I am here to tell you in this narrative is that you as a consumer can also use your voting power and help select the very best from the companies that have been nominated. How cool is that. Check out the categories and the nominees – The voting link will be in my closing thoughts.
