Hundreds of digital influencers were invited to vote on products submitted by toy brands this spring. Influencers were required to have at least one million monthly views on their main platform and a social reach of more than half a million. They reviewed product details, photos, and physical samples (when available) before voting for their favorites.

“The Spring & Summer Influencer Choice List offered an exciting opportunity for all – toy brands elevated the visibility of their products among digital content creators from platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, and influencers had the chance to test out some of the hottest toys and games on the market. And now, families have access to this incredible list of products that will help them to embrace a fun-filled summer of play after a long winter spent social distancing,” said Adrienne Appell, senior vice president of marketing communications at The Toy Association.
