Makro found the ultimate toy-testing panel and the kids have spoken – here are the top toys of 2019

Makro held the second annual Top Rated by Kids event to help parents and kids everywhere know what’s hot and what’s not so hot on the toy radar.

The kids have spoken, proving they really are the besTest judges. The event included 12 top toy manufacturers – and who better to test the newest, never-been-seen-before toys than the kids themselves?

The 150 junior toy testers and 17 VIP juniorlists (junior journalists) headed to the special red carpet event on 22 June 2019 at Makro Riversands and they were ready for the important task. Somebody has to do it! 

They crowned these the besTest in all of Toyland:

10th – Ninjago Spinjitzu from Lego

9th – Hotwheels Corkscrew Crash Track Set from Mattel

8th – Cake Pop Cuties from Siso Toys

7th – Flexee Sand from Verimark

6th – Smart Doggie from Verimark 

5th – iPlay Drifter Pro from Verimark

4th – Helifury from New Laceys

3rd – Nexx Nitro from Tevo

2nd – Drift Climber from Homemark

1st – FurReal Cubby, the Curious Bear from Hasbro

Congratulations to Cubby, the Curious Bear from Hasbro for being voted the BesTest never-before-seen toy in South Africa!

Find Love!
