LEGO wins four Toy of the Year (TOTY) awards at the 2019 New York Toy Fair [News]

LEGO made waves this year by taking back to Billund a total of four out of 19 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards presented at the 2019 New York Toy Fair. This is the highest number of awards that LEGO has won in a single year since the awards’ inception, celebrating four sets that no doubt represent the high level of talent that went into making them.

The Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards (also known as the “Oscars” of the toy industry) are presented annually to the top toys, games, and properties of the year. Administered by The Toy Association, the awards program supports the philanthropic work of The Toy Foundation, which delivers new toys to children in need.

We at The Brothers Brick wish a heartfelt congratulations to The LEGO Group and especially to the designers and creative team behind these sets including Justin Ramsden, Joel Baker, Robert Heim, Jaime Berard, Mark Stafford and Crystal Fontan as well as the folks in the minifigure team led by Matthew Ashton for their passionate work that led to these wins. No doubt we’ve missed many people who helped these sets come to fruition as product design is a team effort, so we congratulate all the unsung heroes behind the scenes as well.
