Top Rated By Kids

The wait for the BesTest toy in the land is over—the kids have spoken.

Johannesburg, 05 September 2019 – The kids have spoken, the votes have been tallied and the wait is over.

Freethinking, but brutally honest, kids make the very best judges of toys. That is why on 22 June 2019 Makro Riversands rolled out the red carpet for 150 lucky kids to be VIP judges at Makro’s second annual Top Rated by Kids event.

The event hosted 150 junior “toy testers” (aged 4–12 years), 17 Juniorlists (junior journalists) and 12 top toy manufactures. The kids know BesTest and the results are out: 

1st - Cubby Bear from Hasbro

2nd - Drift Climber from Homemark

3rd - Nexx Nitro from Tevo

4th - Helifury from New Laceys

5th - Drifter Pro from Verimark

6th - Smart Doggie from Verimark

7th - Flexee Sand from Verimark

8th - Cake Pops from Siso Toys

9th - Hotwheels Corkscrew Set from Mattel

10th — Ninjago Spinjitsu from Lego


Congratulations to Cubby Bear from Hasbro for being voted the BesTest never-before-seen toy in South Africa!

Further congratulations go to Verimark who was voted the BesTest Booth. Top Rated by Kids forms a part of Makro’s programme to inspire learning through experiential activity. Congratulations to six-year-old Jenna Dudley who won the title of Best Juniorlist for her well- structured and holistic report of the event.
