Geeky Toys Do Well at TOTY Awards

Fire stationCongrats to all the winners of the 2008 TOTY awards, which salute the best toys of the year. 2007's winners were fairly mundane -- TMX Elmo but no LEGO? Srsly? But 2008's recipients possess mad geeky cred. Here are some of the winners:

Toy of the Year: Spinmaster Air Hogs Havoc Heli. Remote control dueling choppers!

Activity Toy of the Year: LEGO City. Reviewed here in the past, City fulfills the LEGO's vast potential as perfectly as any series they've put out. Richly deserved!

Game of the Year: Techno Source Rubik's Revolution. An electronic game with the classic Rubik's Cube form factor.

Specialty Toy of the Year: Elenco Snap Circuits. Learn electronic theory with snap-together circuits! It warms my heart that the DIY craze has extended so far that a kit like this could win an award.
