Dad’s Choice Awards 2019 winners revealed thumbnail

The winners of this year’s coveted Dad’s Choice Awards have been revealed.

Over the past few weeks, a select team of Dad testers have been putting some of this year’s top toys through their paces with the help of their kids. After trialing the toys, each was judged on fun factor, quality, value for money and, most importantly, whether the kids thought they were cool.

This year’s awards have been announced to coincide with Black Friday to help all the dads – and mums, grandparents, carers, aunts and uncles – buy the best toys of the year at the best prices.

David Ross, founder of Dad’s Choice Awards says: “Our Dad testers were so thrilled with the toys they tried out this year, and they had such a great time they are begging to be included in next year’s awards already!

“Just when I think it can’t get any better it does! I want to say a huge thank you to our testers and the brands for making this such an incredible awards season.”

All the entries impressed in their own way, but 12 stood head and shoulders above the others and have been crowned Dad’s Choice Awards 2019 winners.
