    Our Mission

    Do you remember walking around Toys R Us and being blown away by the sheer amount of toys on every aisle?

    It’s even worse online. 

    A search for “toys” on Amazon, it will show you over 1,000,000 results.


    With so many new toys released daily, it’s impossible to know the difference between a toy your kid will love and a toy that will get thrown into a corner. 

    TheToyZone’s mission is to help more kids end up with toys they love.

    Unlike most other review sites, we don’t just give you a list of the best rated toys based on user comments with no regard to the possibility that those “honest” reviews may be artificially “adjusted.”

    That is why whenever we are evaluating a toy, we utilize the latest score from Fakespot.com to identify if vote manipulation exists. 

    Many retailers are working hard to uncover these bogus reviews but for popular products it will always be an issue, that’s why we think it’s important to identify fake reviews early on.

    This enables us to filter those toys that are regularly being praised on retailer review sites and those that are not. 

    By utilizing a variety of public data sources, we are able to discover toy trends before they happen so we can show you only the toys that kids are playing with and truly enjoying.

    We also work directly with an expert in child development and educational psychology to ensure that the toys we recommend are age appropriate and support a child’s development. 

    If you want our team to review a toy you have found, be sure to get in touch.
