The winning toys were selected based on the following criteria: innovative and cool; magnetic and engaging for the child; mind-expanding or educational; and an excellent value to the consumer.
“We want to congratulate all of the winners of Scholastic Parent & Child magazine’s first-ever Gold Star Toy Awards,” said Jamie Engel, Publisher of Scholastic Parent & Child. “It can be difficult to stand out among so many toys on the market, but our editors and readers selected the best gifts that offer learning and fun at a great value.”
