Dadsnet Toy Awards 2021 – Categories

Take a look below at the various categories for this years Dadsnet Toy Awards. 

Since our inaugural year in 2019, we’ve been planning some tweaks to these toy awards meaning we’re so excited to announce that entries are opening on 1st February 2021 and we’re gearing up for an even more fabulous few months of testing, scoring and celebrating than last year.

These consumer-facing toy awards are now building on the success of our previous years as well as our coveted baby & toddler product awards. These awards will showcase the very best toys on the market, spanning age ranges from 0 – 12 years.

With so many ‘mum’ award badges out there, Dadsnet is keen to balance it out and as a leading authority on fatherhood, our prestigious award badges are being recognised by consumers and retailers alike. 

Across all the categories below, the judging process will be looking for excellent quality, great value for money, superb innovation and maximum play potential.

  • Best baby toy (0-6 months)

Category Changes

Winning a Dadsnet award is fast becoming highly sought after, but as we’re still fairly new it’s not uncommon for us to tweak the category list once the entries close.

This can obviously mean that some products will have been placed in 1 category but may be better suited in another. In this instance, we will move the product into the best-suited category so it has the very best chance to succeed.  

Remember, entries open on 1st February 2021 at 9am!
