Last year several LEGO® products were nominated across multiple categories in the 2018 Toy of the Year Awards, with the awards taking place last night in New York. The awards, which coincide with the New York Toy Fair, are hosted by The Toy Association, have 17 categories in which LEGO products have been nominated in five of them.
- Collectibles: The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure Series
- Construction: LEGO Star Wars BB-8
- Creative: LEGO Make Your Own Movie (Klutz Books)
- Speciality: LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon
- Tech: LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox
LEGO picked up three awards last night with LEGO Star Wars BB-8 picking up Construction Toy of the Year, the UCS Millennium Falcon bagging Speciality Toy of the Year and LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox winning for the second year running, this time picking up Tech Toy of the Year. All three winning sets are worthy winners, with BB-8 resulting a unique Star Wars themed set and of course the UCS Falcon is not only a beast of a set it has sold amazingly. Despite being out for over a year now LEGO Boost is still doing will and will soon be integrated into other LEGO sets.
