The global toy community will be gathering virtually on Friday (February 18) to find out the U.S. Toy Associationâ€™sÂ Toy of the Year AwardÂ (TOTY) winners for 2022.
Anticipation is already building for what is sure to be an exciting experience, filled with lots of surprises and heart-warming tributes to this yearâ€™s Hall of Fame inductees and the philanthropic work of The Toy Foundation.
Adding to the fun, a TOTY after party will take place in the metaverse from 5pm to 8pm. The event is open to anyone who registered for the TOTY awards. Ticketholders will automatically be registered for the after party. However, tickets must beÂ reserved onlineÂ prior to the event.
Powered by NewSky, this one-of-a-kind immersive virtual networking experience will keep the fun going long after the last award is handed out. Guests will be able to mingle, chat â€˜face-to-faceâ€™ (or avatar-to-avatar), get an up-close look at the TOTY winners, and explore a special location in the metaverse. You wonâ€™t want to miss it!
Attending the TOTYs and the afterparty is free and open to all. So, invite your colleagues, friends, family, neighbours – everyone is welcome. Wondering what the metaverse is all about? Check out this sneak peek of the TOTY awards afterparty.
The U.S. Toy Association said: â€˜If we canâ€™t be together in person, the metaverse has to be the next best thing. Looking forward to reconnecting and catching up with you soon!â€™
