Originally nominated with 11 products across nine different categories, the LEGO Group has come out on top in seven of them, including both in which it had two different sets vying for the title. Those were Construction Toy of the Year (41684 Heartlake City Grand Hotel and 76178 Daily Bugle) and Playset of the Year (75312 Boba Fett’s Starship and 71387 Adventures with Luigi Starter Course), with the Marvel and Star Wars sets taking the crown respectively.
The superhero theme also bagged Collectible of the Year with 71031 Marvel Studios, its first blind-bagged Collectible Minifigures series, while in-house LEGO themes Creator and the Botanical Collection each snagged an award. Check out the full list of LEGO Toy of the Year 2022 awards below.

Grown-Up Toy of the Year was a new category for 2022, and basically had the LEGO Group’s name written all over it: last year saw the company make a concentrated effort to target new adult consumers with its 18+ range, which includes radical new concepts like the Botanical Collection.
Elsewhere, 10295 Porsche 911 lost out on Vehicle of the Year to PLAYMOBIL’s Volkswagen T1 Camping Bus, while Moose Toys’ Magic Mixies Magic Cauldron triumphed over 43115 The Boombox in Creative Toy of the Year. Still, seven out of nine ain’t bad.
