If American families were given the chance to create their own ’Wish List’ of toys and games for the holiday season, which playthings would make the cut? TimetoPlayMag.com answers that question by revealing the winners of the 2009 People’s Play Awards! Following is the list of toys and games that made ’America’s Wish List’ for the 2009 holiday season.
The People’s Play Awards gave the public a forum to select the toys and games they are hoping to receive this holiday season. Nominees in the fourteen categories were carefully reviewed and selected by the Time to Play editorial team headed by Jim Silver, editor in chief, and Chris Byrne, content director aka The Toy Guy®. Visitors to the website were encouraged to vote throughout October and November of this year.
