Family Fun Best Toys of 2015

With the help of families across the nation, FamilyFun Announces its 2015 Toy Of The Year Awards.

FamilyFun magazine has announced its 2015 Toy Of The Year awards. With the help of families across the United States, the magazine tested over 300 toys to find the best of the best. For nearly 1000 hours, families tested board games, cute jewelry, blocks, and more. The toys are all kid tested and approved. They narrowed their list to 20 of the most unique and fun toys.

The best part? All of the toys that made the list get kids way from the screen. With kids increasing turning to entertainment in the form of tablets and other electronic devices, we need more Christmas toys for girls and boys that get them away from the screen.

Elizabeth Shaw, editor in chief, believes that the toys help build imagination in kids, helping them to create their own fun and content. Games and tablets have their place, but these toys are much more intimate and meaningful for fun.

Here is a list of the 20 award winning toys. While there were no baby toys or toddler toys on the list, some of these toys made our christmas toys 2021 list.
