Canadian Toy Testing Council

Did you know Canada.. the Canadian Toy Testing Council puts out the TOY REPORT offering guidance on the best toys for children. The CTTC is a not-for profit organization run by volunteers in Ottawa.  For 60 years, the CTTC has been providing the reliable and unbiased annual Toy Report to help parents navigate toy store shelves with confidence.

The Canadian Toy Testing Council (CTTC) seeks toy testers to evaluate toys for the 2013 CTTC Toy Report. If you live in the Ottawa-Gatineau area and have kids aged 0 months – 16 years, we want to hear from you!

What’s Involved
Before the toy testing season begins, families attend a two-hour orientation session for an overview of the process. Then the fun begins! Families get toys to test in their home for eight week periods throughout spring and fall. At the end of the eight week testing period, parents complete a report that evaluates each toy based on design, function, safety, durability, battery consumption, and play value.

How Much Does it Cost?
The CTTC charges a $30 annual fee, which is used to support the program and administrative needs of the volunteer-run organization.
