Congrats to all the winners of the 2008 TOTY awards, which salute the best toys of the year. 2007′s winners were fairly mundane — TMX Elmo but no LEGO? Srsly? But 2008′s recipients possess mad geeky cred. Here are some of the winners:
Toy of the Year: Spinmaster Air Hogs Havoc Heli. Remote control dueling choppers!
Activity Toy of the Year: LEGO City. Reviewed here in the past, City fulfills the LEGO’s vast potential as perfectly as any series they’ve put out. Richly deserved!
Game of the Year: Techno Source Rubik’s Revolution. An electronic game with the classic Rubik’s Cube form factor.
Specialty Toy of the Year: Elenco Snap Circuits. Learn electronic theory with snap-together circuits! It warms my heart that the DIY craze has extended so far that a kit like this could win an award.
