Last Chance: Cast Your TOTY Vote for the People’s Choice Award Winner!

toty-logoNovember 2, 2022 | As The Toy Foundation’s Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award finalists and category winners are topping gift guide recommendations and kids’ wish lists this holiday season, anticipation is building for the final reveal: Which toys will win the coveted Toy of the Year and People’s Choice awards?

Anyone can vote now through November 11 at to help decide the People’s Choice award winner. The overall Toy of the Year award winner will be determined by a panel of experts; both results will be announced November 21, 2022.

“We’re bringing another element of excitement to consumers at the peak of the holiday shopping season by announcing which toys will receive the highest TOTY honors just before Thanksgiving,” said Pamela Mastrota, executive director of The Toy Foundation. “We encourage everyone to have a say in the People’s Choice award winner by casting their votes by November 11!”

Proceeds from the TOTY Awards help support The Toy Foundation’s (TTF) philanthropic programs. Alongside other fundraising efforts and toy drives, this year TTF has donated more than $4 million in aid to Ukrainian children and families; play therapy activities were made available to 175,000 pediatric patients; and young, diverse talent was introduced to careers in toys through the Foundation’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiative.
