Good Housekeeping has announced its list 2017's best toys.

According to the magazine, more than 500 toys were tested for safety by the Good Housekeeping Institute's engineers.

After testing, the engineers narrowed down the list to 100 toys and then held in-lab testing days where nearly 100 children, aged 1 to 13, assessed the fun factor by playing with the toys in the GH Media & Tech Lab and at home to inform the decision process.
