Every year, the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) publishes a list of products that are honoured with a Best Toys for Kids award. The list of finalists includes a whopping 83 specialty toys that will be voted on for ASTRA’s 2015 Best Toys for Kids award! The 83 play products are assigned to one of 14 categories including Active Play, Classic Play, Scientific Play, Construction Play, Game Play (by age groups), plus others and then the voting begins! What makes the Best Toys for Kids award so great? One reason, it's the people who vote.
