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.

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.

WINNING: Sara Harvey Interviewed About Her Toy Collection on Martha Stewart Website

I've always referred to Sara as my "social media hero" and this most recent coverage is yet another example: Sara and her epic toy collection was just covered by Martha Stewart!

My admiration of Sara started when I got a glimpse of her epic Pinterest page. I suppose much of her following snowballed from that singularly impressive corner of the web.

One day I hope to put as much effort into my own social media as Sara. Until then I will simply admire her work.
