HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!
The Toy Insider, the source for the hottest kids’ toys and gifts, is now accepting submissions for its 15th annual Holiday Gift Guide! DEADLINE EXTENDED: All submissions are due by June 26.
ABOUT THE GUIDE
Featured in the November issue of Parents magazine and online at thetoyinsider.com, the guide will showcase the best toys and gifts for the holiday season. Reaching millions of consumers, the Toy Insider Holiday Gift Guide will feature more than 250 toys for kids of all ages. The guide also includes the Toy Insider’s iconic Hot 20, 12 Under $12, and STEM 10 lists. In total, the Toy Insider generated more than 4.5 billion media impressions in 2019. Now in its 15th year, the Toy Insider is a trusted resource for parents and gift-givers all year long.
HOW TO SUBMIT
If you have a great toy, game, or gift you’d like to be considered for inclusion in the Toy Insider, please click the link below to fill out the submission form. Products must be new for 2020, and must be on-shelf no later than Nov. 1.
Due to the large number of submissions anticipated for review and the operational costs of running a program of this magnitude, we charge a SUBMISSION FEE of $95 PER TOY. Please note: Submitting your product does not guarantee inclusion in the guide. For insight on how we choose the toys in our guide, click here!
Due to COVID-19, we cannot accept product samples for testing to our office. When submitting your products, you will be asked the best way for us to see a demo of your product: submitting b-roll, setting up a video demo with the editors, or — if it’s absolutely necessary — sending a physical product sample to our homes. Please do not send any product samples until we provide an address for you to send it to!
All submissions are due by June 26! If your b-roll will not be ready for product review by June 26, please email us and let us know an ETA on the footage.
