The Toy of the Year Awards – or TOTY – has come around again, with the industry’s premier toy awards set to vote on and pick winners for 2022 of the best toys on the market.
The famous electronic toy brand Vtech has seen three of its latest toys being listed as finalists this year. These are the brand’s Sort & Recycle Ride-On Truck, KidiZoom® PrintCam, and – of most interest to us – an all-new VTech dinosaur toy, the Switch & Go Velociraptor Jet, have all made the cut.
With the Switch & Go Velociraptor Jet, you can race and roar with this dinosaur transformer, switching between propeller disc-launching Jet and velociraptor modes in just a few moves.
Like other toys in the product line from VTech, this one features an LCD screen with animated eyes – helping to bring this toy to life for more engaging, creative play and storytelling. It also comes packed full of 70+ responses and sound effects, making this one of the more interactive dinosaur toys released this year.
The toy is up against some stiff competition in the “Vehicle of the Year” category – coming up against entries from big-name brands like Hot Wheels, Hasbro, Mattel, Playmobil, Spin Master, and LEGO.

- Air Hogs Jump Fury
