Dr. Toy's Children's Products Awards Programs

This section provides guidelines for companies to submit products for review by Dr. Toy.

New Submissions

There are four award programs held by Dr. Toy each year. Any company with a product suitable for consideration in Dr. Toy's Award Programs is invited to do the following:

Send Dr. Toy a press kit and catalog along with a cover letter to the address below, or with the subject: Toy Programs 2006. (Note that entries deadlines for all 2006 programs are now past. Information and dates about the 2007 programs will soon be posted.)

We request you followup on your email with one page of product information/description. A press kit is not necessary to send with query. It can be sent with the product entry.

If Dr. Toy agrees that the product(s) should be evaluated, then you will be sent an application and further instructions. Do not send the product(s) ahead of time. There is no guarantee of selection. No materials are returned. If not evaluated and included in one of the programs, it will be donated to a needy children's program.

Only a limited number of products that fit a lengthy set of criteria are selected.

Send your questions via fax to 510-540-0171, or .

Thank you for your interest, understanding and response to our programs!
