Well, would you look at that! After an incredibly tough 18 months for everyone worldwide, we have a sense of some normality return to our Designer Toy community as the Designer Toy Awards 2020 (yeah for 2020) are back for VOTING! Yup, the Designer Toy Awards are back to celebrate all the good shit that went on during the year of 2019. Yeah, feels like a million years ago, we know but some good shit went down in 2019 that we need to raise the roof & celebrate!
Are you ready to cast your minds back to the good years of 2019? Yeah, cos you’re needed now to VOTE for your favourite Designer Toy releases from the year that wasn’t as bad as we thought considering what we have encountered in 2020 & 2021.
To make your life easier, the Designer Toy Awards nominations have been whittled down to smaller categories to help you make your vote. Thanks to the DTA Committee members for your working going through all the nominations for 2019 and getting them into a fit state for our VOTING!
Committee Members: Dov Kelmer, Travis Lykins, Gary Rozanski, Vincent Yu, Keegan Rooney, Evan Martinez, David Bruck, Kyle Kirwan, Don Kratzer, Jack Muramatsu, Jeff Rawson, Yaniv Brick, Steve Braun, Sarah Churchill, Czee13, Justin Cheah, Rob Lumino & Katherine Park.
Ok, now is the important part! YOUR VOTE! It’s all relatively simple to do too. All you gotta do is hit that button below to take you through to the Designer Toy Awards. Log in/Register with them, and time to vote for your favourites in a large number of categories that are open to the PUBLIC VOTE (see below).
The Designer Toy Awards PUBLIC VOTE allows you to vote in the Artist of the Year (FAN), Custom of the Year (FAN), Toy of the Year (FAN), Best Media Outlet (!!), Best Toy Toy Store and Best Online Toy Store! Six categories that really matter. Make your vote count. You can vote ONCE per category, so be wise!

As a final point, HUGE FUCKING CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL & EVERYONE THAT WAS NOMINATED AND THOSE THAT MADE IT THROUGH TO THE 2020 FINALISTS! YOU GUYS KILLED IT IN 2019!
Second FINAL POINT! This is the TENTH Designer Toy Awards and that in itself is HUGE FUCKING NEWS, right? But we hear there is a special award for the winners for this ceremony.
