After months and months of toy mania, it’s all come down to this. We’re finally walking our bosses through the top kid-tested toy picks. Come along for the whirlwind toy show, or check out previous episodes by clicking here.
But wait! There’s more! The toy fun doesn’t stop here. Next week, pick up the toy guide in our November issue, and come back to GoodyBlog for the start of a super-cool (and HUGE) giveaway.
In this week’s episode, Selin and I (okay, mostly Selin) schlep all of our testers’ favorite toys down to the casting room to set up for the big show with our bosses. The grunt work never ends! (For Selin)

One of the questions I get asked most often is “What does a toy test actually involve?” It’s a lot like last-minute holiday shopping at Toys ‘R’ Us: Kids swarming, toys flying left and right, and the overwhelming desire to get out with all your limbs still attached. Okay…so I’m being slightly dramatic. Slightly. See for yourself right now, or click here to watch more toy vlogs.
In this week’s episode, there’s just one thing standing between us and the toys: the wildly excessive packaging. Check out the vlog below, or get caught up with the previous installments by clicking here.
If you think selecting the best toys of the year for our big November guide is just a lot of fun and games, well, you’d be right. But it’s also lots of work, too. We’re pulling together some videos to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the toy test, from the first meetings at Toy Fair through the photo shoot of the finalists. Check out the first vlog now, and don’t forget to come back next week for another installment.
It’s the final day of Toy Fair, and let’s just say things got a little, well, bananas. The Uglydoll drama from yesterday continued (don’t worry–there’s a happy ending), fellow GoodyBlogger and today’s vlog co-host Taryn got way too up close and personal with a giant stuffed bear, dinosaurs are no longer extinct apparently, and oh yeah…we finally take you on that Toy Fair tour we’ve been promising.
Welcome to GoodyVlog!!! Yes, that’s right…we’re attempting our first ever video blog (so be nice!) to give you an inside look at what it’s like to go to Toy Fair. This is just a sneak peek, but tomorrow we’ll post videos that put you right in the middle of the action. Check out our intro clip below, and remember to come back for more blogs and (and now vlogs).
PS. Sorry for the quality—I need a new camera (hint, hint).
