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
