As we previously announced, the Designer Toy Awards have begun 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… The one that is up for auction today is the "Pierced (Shades of Grey)" by Parra & Kidrobot!

Make sure you read the very bottom of this post, which explains how silent auctions work and how to place bids in this one!

Parra & Kidrobot's "Pierced (Shades of Grey)," a 10-inch tall vinyl sculpture limited to 750 copies and sold out everywhere! Winner of Toy of the Year at this year's DTAs! This silent auction is taking place TODAY (Friday, December 13th) from RIGHT NOW until 4PM Eastern time!

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 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. 

 Thanks for supporting The Designer Toy Awards, and GOOD LUCK!!
