The Toy Association has announced the exciting news that Blue's Clues & You! and PAW Patrol: The Movie have both received two nominations each in the prestigious 2022 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards!

Both Blue's Clues & You! (ViacomCBS) and PAW Patrol: The Movie (Spin Master and ViacomCBS) have been nominated in the "License of the Year" category of this year's awards, which honors the character or property that has had success spreading its brand through the development and merchandising of products developed from the intellectual property (IP).

Meanwhile, "Blue's Clues & You! Check-up Time Blue" by Just Play has been nominated in the "Plush Toy of the Year" category, dedicated to toys that are made of fabric and stuffed with cotton or similar filling, including toys with interactive or electronic features.

Finally, the "PAW Patrol: The Movie Chase's Transforming City Cruiser" by Spin Master has been nominated in the "Vehicle of the Year" category, dedicated to toy cars, trucks, trains and other vehicles in all scales, including R/C vehicles but exclusive of ride-ons.

Known as the "Oscars" of the toy industry, the TOTY Awards program recognizes the top playthings on the market and is a vital fundraiser for The Toy Foundation, which delivers the magic of play to millions of children in vulnerable situations.

From creative construction toys and innovative collectibles to lovable plush and toys for grown-ups, the 2022 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards finalists are sure to be topping wish lists this holiday season.

Families can now head to to vote for their favorite toys & games in each of the 16 categories, browse toys, and download shopping lists for the holidays. There are 114 finalists in total.

This year's TOTY finalists were selected from 623 nominees submitted in 16 different categories.

They considered each product's creativity, design, and play value.

Winners will be announced at The Toy Foundation's TOTY Awards gala on Friday, February 18, 2022.
