The Toy Industry Association (TIA) is inviting TIA members and toy industry stakeholders to submit candidate nominations for the Toy Industry Hall of Fame in February 2011. The nomination period is currently open and will close June 30.

TIA members and non-member stakeholders within the North American toy industry are eligible to submit candidates for consideration. Membership in TIA is not a prerequisite for submitting a nomination.

The candidate(s) should have accomplishments such as: long experience in the industry; innovative product or marketing introductions; manufacturing process changes, which significantly improved the process or product; service on the TIA Board of Directors, or in other important capacities in or related to toys and youth entertainment; and an unimpeachable record of integrity and respect in the industry.

The Toy Industry Hall of Fame Committee will meet in July to review the nominations received. For more information, click here.
