The Canadian Toy Testing Council has released its 2014 Toy Report, just in time for the holiday season.
The CTTC enlisted 200 Canadian families to test over 400 toys, from traditional board games to electronic toys. Children take the toys into their
homes for a 6 to 8 week period. The toys are then rated based on safety, durability, design, function, and play value.
