2012 Designer Toy Award Results

October 15, 2012

The 2nd Annual Designer Toy Awards was held on October 13th, 2012 (during New York Comic-Con weekend) at the historic Providence NYC, one of New York City's most opulent venues! 

For the second year, the Designer Toy Awards recognized artist, stores, blogs, and companies for their contributions to the designer toy industry. Half the awards were determined by popular vote through the DTA website, and the other half were voted on by a panel of industry experts. 

The trophies themselves are perfect designer toy collectibles, designed by legendary toy artist Pete Fowler and produced by Pretty In Plastic
