Clutter Magazine is pleased to bring The 7th Annual Designer Toy Awards (DTAs) fueled by Lagunitas Brewing Company to Webster Hall (125 E 11th Street) on Friday, May 19. The world’s premier accolade for designer toy artists and the industry around them, The Designer Toy Awards fueled by Lagunitas this year kicks off the inaugural Five Points Festival!

DTA nominees span North America, Asia, Europe, and Latin America, with winners determined both through a panel of industry judges as well as in select categories by the voting public. The Designer Toy Awards fueled by Lagunitas have consistently recognized emerging, leading, and influential names in the art toy movement, with past award winners including Amanda Louise Spayd, Andrew Bell, Chris Ryniak, Frank Kozik, Gary Ham, Jason Freeny, J*Ryu, Huck Gee, KAWS, Luke Chueh, Tristan Eaton, Todd McFarlane, Bigfoot One, and Ron English.

Want to go to the DTAs? A separate evening event, general admission into Five Points doesn’t include DTA access, but a limited Five Points VIP Pass gets you in to rub elbows and chug drinks with designer toy royalty!


Hosting the DTAs this year is Academy Award-nominated writer, director, producer, and obsessive toy collector Morgan Spurlock. Known for Super Size Me, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan’s Hope, Mansome, The Eagle Huntress, and Morgan Spurlock Inside Man, Spurlock is also an avid fan and collector, and he brings with him tremendous respect and knowledge for the designer toy space.
