Welcome to our second annual Top 10 Toys and Toy lines for 2014! This was a unique year for toys and out of all the releases we had some gems that stood out from the rest. Of course we had some help in developing this list and as always you might not agree with what he have and that is okay. Besides the top 10 we also want to spotlight the top 10 toy lines of 2014! Last year Playmates ran with the number one spot with their TMNT line and who knows what they will place this year. Also take note that 3rd Party Transformers and most imports are not included in this top 10 with the exception of one company. This is due to their US partner.
