The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association, ASTRA, has recently released their picks for the Best Toys for Kids for 2016. For the most part it’s a lot of non-board game items, but they do have some game categories with board game winners worth mentioning. And they are:
Choose your Own Category – Sneaky Cards, published by Gamewright
Classic Play, 0-7 Years – Rat-A-Tat Cat, published by Gamwright
Game Play, 6+ Years – Happy Salmon, published by North Star Games
Game Play, 8 Years+ – Dr. Eureka, published by Blue Orange Games
There are more awards given by ASTRA for other types of toys, so if you want to see the full list you can download it from the ASTRA site.
