And The 2012 Designer Toy Awards Winners Are...

The Designer Toy Awards 2012 presented by Clutter Magazine

Last Saturday night during New York Comic-Con 2012, the 2nd Annual Designer Toy Awards ceremony presented by Clutter Magazine took place at Providence NYC. While The Blot wasn’t able to attend, it sounds like it was a really great event celebrating everything that’s great about the world of designer art toys. Before we get to the list of winners, I just wanted to say once again what an honor it was to be a finalist for the 2nd straight year in the Best Blog category! There are some really amazing websites out there and to be considered in their company is really a thrill. Thanks to everyone out there who has read TheBlotSays.com in the past year, voted for me in the DTAs or followed me on Twitter! Your support is greatly appreciated!!! And now on to the winners…
