The official awards ceremony took place on 21 July 2018 and here’s a breakdown of the winning toys. There’s everything from toys that help develop kids’ creativity, design and coding skills to videogames with unique add-ons.

TOY NUMBER 7:The Lego Boost Creative Toolbox

This game combines the versatile Lego building system with advanced technology to boost kids’ creativity. After downloading the app, kids follow step-by-step instructions to build and code any of the five ultra-cool multifunctional units – from a moving, talking robot to a rover unit and a digital guitar. 

TOY NUMBER 6: Electro Blocks

These mega blocks from iPlay stimulate design thinking and feed creative imagination by empowering young boys and girls. Kids have fun with a series of interlocking gears and blocks – to build their mechanical creations, turn them on and watch them operate. 

TOY NUMBER 5: Starlink for X-box

Kids get their game faces on with this action-adventure game created purely for them, but with all the cool elements of adult gaming included. Using a custom starship model mounted to their game controller, kids build their own interactive experiences as they lead a group of heroes in exploring seven unique planets while combating enemies. 

TOY NUMBER 4: Nerf N-Strike Elite Infinus blaster

Blast into action this season! Kids can crush and blast opponents harmlessly with darts. The motorised Infinus blaster has a detachable 30-dart drum and features speed-load technology that automatically loads darts into the drum for more firepower.
