Even though it’s the middle of summer, it’s toy testing time for us as
we get our October issue Toy Guide ready. This year we decided to take
the toys to Sick Kids Hospital to be tested. Children of all ages and
their parents played with almost 100 different toys, gave us their
feedback, and each left with one. Some toys will replenish the toy rooms
at the hospital, too. Dealing with a sick child is stressful and the
distraction proved to make for a great afternoon! Thanks to our friends
at Sick Kids for helping us make the event such a success. Watch for our
October issue to see which toys made the cut!
Here’s a link to the news item that aired on Global Television’s Toronto newscast (segment starts at 8:25 in the video). There was also a video done by the folks at the Toronto Star.
