    Toy Fair 2017: Toy Of The Year Awards

    The Friday night ahead of Toy Fair included the 17th Annual Toy of the Year Awards. We missed the $395-a-plate gala, but we were able to see the winning toys - including two from LEGO - the next morning. 71040 Disney Castle won Specialty Toy of the Year, and 41130 Amusement Park Roller Coaster won both Toy of the Year and Construction Toy of the Year.

    As we previously reported, four LEGO products had been nominated. Construction Toy of the Year was one of several new catagories introduced this year, and LEGO is likely to be a contender for it in upcoming years as well. In addition to the two winning sets, LEGO had been nominated for two other new categories: 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS was nominated for Vehicle Toy of the Year and 71012 LEGO Minifigures - The Disney Series had been nominated for Collectible of the Year.

    Here's the full list of winners (note that they are not labeled by category in our photos):

    • Action Figure of the Year: DC Super Hero Girls™ Action Figure Assortment from Mattel, Inc.
    • Active/Outdoor Toy of the Year: Bunch O Balloons from Zuru
