2023 The Best Brands in the Industry Unite at the TOTY® Awards to Deliver Play to Children in Need

toy-of-the-year-awards-2022June 27, 2023 | No matter how large or small your toy company is, you have the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life at the Toy of the Year® (TOTY®) Awards. The ultimate fundraiser for The Toy Foundation™ (TTF), every award submission, sponsorship, and ticket purchase greatly support TTF’s work to deliver the extraordinary benefits of play to children in need and your participation is crucial.

The TOTY Awards, taking place on September 29 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, will be a high-energy and high-impact event featuring exclusive entertainment from Grammy Award-winning artist Wyclef Jean, prestigious awards, the Toy Industry Hall of Fame induction ceremony, a one-of-a-kind auction, and networking opportunities. Best of all, all this excitement unites the toy industry behind TTF’s key program areas – The Toy Bank, Play Grants, and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion — to create a greater collective impact on children in need.

“We’re beyond excited to welcome everyone back to NYC with the TOTY Awards, the must-attend party the night before Toy Fair®,” said Michael Rinzler, entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor, and chair of TTF’s Development and Fundraising Committee. “In addition to TOTY being an epic party, it really does make a difference for our industry and for the children and families who benefit from your generosity.”

TTF is YOUR Foundation, and this important work cannot be achieved without your continued support. Thanks to your generosity in 2022, TTF was able to:

  • Deliver brand new toys to more than 750,000 children
  • Support care for 175,000 hospitalized children receiving urgent care
  • Launch a pipeline program to recruit diverse, young talent to careers in the toy industry
