The Designer Toy Awards are very excited to announce a brand new and fun initiative: Toy of the Year Silent Auctions! In support of the 3rd Annual Designer Toy Awards, the DTAs were lucky enough to have more than half of the finalists in the Toy of the Year category donate a single copy of their nominated release to be put up for silent auction! Many of these toys are now completely sold out and very hard to find! In addition, there are even a couple of extra rare and exciting items being auctioned that artists generously donated for this purpose!
Make sure you read the very bottom of this post, which explains how silent auctions work and how to place bids in this one!

Tuesday, December 10th, 12 NOON to 4PM EST : Brandt Peters & Ferg's "Squadt Terror Boys: ooze [oilish]," the 6-inch tall vinyl, ABS, and cloth piece. Still sealed, Ferg has signed the underside of the box! The Squadt TroubleBoys, also by Brandt and Ferg, won Best Collaboration in this year's DTAs!

How Silent Auctions Work
To enter the Silent Auction you must submit the amount you're willing to pay for the item, not knowing what others have bid or if you are currently winning. If you have placed the highest bid during the specified timeframe, then you are the winner and are responsible for paying your bidded amount.
How To Bid
On the appropriate day and timeframe, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your bid. The winner will be notified on the same day and have 24 hours to make payment. If they fail to make payment, the next highest bidder will become the default winner under the same terms and so forth.
