The Ultimate Toy Awards category nominees are all featured All Stars in the Holiday 2007 issue of Toy Wishes, on newsstands the first week of October. The All Stars are selected by the Toy Wishes editorial board as the brightest, most innovative toys in over twenty different categories. The highly anticipated Hot Dozen list is chosen from these All Stars.
"Each year as we head into the holiday season, we announce our much anticipated Hot Dozen list featuring the twelve toy and family entertainment products expected to be the most in demand," said Jim Silver, editor in chief of Toy Wishes. "This year in addition to the annual list created by the Toy Wishes editorial staff, we are thrilled to invite the American public to create a hot toy list of its very own."
"We always say, 'the hot toy is only hot if it's hot for your kid," said Chris Byrne, independent toy analyst and contributing editor to Toy Wishes. "For the past 9 years, Toy Wishes has provided an exciting, entertaining guide to what's hot this season, and now it's going interactive. The Ultimate Toy Awards gives people a chance to share with us what they and their families are putting on their wish lists."
