AUDIENCE FAVOURITE: Michel
Some ToyVoyagers consistently put smiles on our faces - you voted for Michel as the ToyVoyager that you would most like to have land on your doorstep.
ANIMAL MAGIC: Princess Sarah
Some animals can be a ToyVoyager's best friend. Others prefer to see a ToyVoyager as a new addition to their box of chewable toys. The latter always seems to prove popular with our members, and this year is no exception. The winner was Princess Sarah (being savaged by a squirrel!):
Princess Sarah, Bird Feeder Day 2, Canada, Rennire - 12th December 2010
BEST ACTION Murph
Some Toy Voyagers are presumably a bit nervous in front of the camera as they just stand there frozen. Others have no such fear. This was an excellent category this year with some great entries on the shortlist. You picked Murph's bowling antics as your favourite shot:

BEST TRAVELOG Dicker Kumpel
This prize is for the Toy Voyager who has done it all: travelled to all sorts of exciting places and told us about them in an entertaining account accompanied by a fantastic range of pictures, which show the ToyVoyager on its travels. Dicker Kumpel is a great example and this year's winner.
ToyVoyagers who have been around for at least more than 2 years, who have travelled far from their mentors and built up what we consider to be 'classic' travelogs. To qualify for this category, the ToyVoyager must have been on the site for a while and all (or almost all) of the travelogs photos must show the ToyVoyager. You think Cassiopeia ticks all the right boxes!
BEST WRITING Dicker Kumpel
This category celebrates the words in the travelog - featuring updates that have proved entertaining in their own right. You voted for Dicker Kumpel as this years winner.
MOST PROMISING NEWCOMER Zoe
Can you spot the next big thing? Winning with more than a third of your votes, clearly Zoe has made a great impression and is this year's Most Promising Newcomer.
