2005 Toy Awards: The Readers’ Picks
We asked our readers to submit their choices for 5 categories. These included the Best Vinyl Figure, Best Plush Figure, Best Toy Line, Best Company and Toy of the Year. The resutls are in and there were some very close races.
Best Vinyl Figure
This award went to Mr. Bunny from Joe Ledbetter and Wheaty Wheat. A close second was Huck Gee's Skullhead figures.
Best Plush Figure
The Uglydolls were a runaway winner...although folks seemed to differ as to which was their favorite (Ugly Dog, Limited Edition Wage, Mini Uglys). Readers chose Shawnimals for second place.
Best Toy Line
Readers were definitely fans of Kidrobot's Dunny line. Qees, produced by Toy2r, came in a close second.
Most Outstanding Toy Company
This was the most competitive category with Wheaty Wheat Studios (on the heels of their Ledbetter line) squeaking out a victory over Kidrobot, Toy2R and STRANGEco.
Toy of the Year
You folks chose Mr. Bunny as your favorite toy of thise past year. In a somewhat ironic twist, Fire-Cat (also designed by Joe Ledbetter and Wheaty Wheat) came in a close second.
