MumsDelivery Toy Awards 2017

In the lead up to Christmas, MumsDelivery in conjunction with the Busy Mums Magazine, ran a Toy Testing event where we gathered a range of families and asked them to test and rate some of the top toys for Christmas 2017. Each Toy Tester was asked to rate the toys on a 1-5 Scale on the following factors:

Safety: How safe the toy is.

Age Appropriateness: How suitable the toy is for the ages suggested.

Quality: The perceived quality of the toy.

Price: Based on the toy, how is its recommended retail price point.

Want Factor: How appealing is the toy to the child.

Below is each toy we rated, MumsDelivery thoughts on the toy and a comment from one of the testers. The higher the percentage values of the Test Scores, the better the result.
