LEGO Wins Three Awards at 2018 Toy of the Year Awards Gala

The 2018 Toy of the Year winners were announced yesterday just ahead of the New York Toy Fair and I’m happy to say that LEGO wins big again this year. LEGO was nominated in five categories this year including:

Collectible of the Year – The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017)

Construction Toy of the Year – LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) / LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean The Silent Mary (71042)

Creative Toy of the Year – LEGO Make Your Own Movie

Specialty Toy of The Year – LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

Tech Toy of the Year – LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox (17101)


LEGO picked up three awards last night for LEGO Star Wars BB-8 as the Construction Toy of the Year, LEGO Boost for Tech Toy of the Year, and the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon for the Specialty Toy of the Year. This is the second year in a row that LEGO has won for Construction and Specialty Toy of the Year.

With some of the new LEGO products coming out this year, I’m sure we’ll be seeing LEGO again on the ballot in a few categories and they have a great chance for the coveted Toy of the Year award.
