The awards are right, this is the toy of the Year! I wanted to start by explaining how I found out about this toy. I noticed the Holiday Toy List for Amazon had just landed, and I sorted the products by “best selling”. To my surprise, the littleBits R2 D2 product shot up from the bottom of the page, right to the top. I’m not sure how Amazon treats featured items, but I would encourage you all to do the same when looking at products.
