I just watched The Dice Tower's Board Game Breakfast and in the kickstarter segment (Suzzanne) was the game Tiny Epic Quest with Item Meeples, they have holes on them so they can hold items like shields, swords and other stuff. She said the "toy factor" is high.

Toy Factor? What other games have a high "Toy Factor"?

Basically everything designed by Horrible Games; Dungeon Fighter, Raise Your Goblets, Potion Explosion...

While not all game concepts lend themselves to it, having a very tactile experience in your game is a fantastic accomplishment.

Oh, and a sneaky shout-out to Junk Art.

Chimera Station has a similar toy feel to it. Another recent KS, where you can change the look of the workers which changes their use in the game.

For me, anything with lots of miniatures. In fact, I think these meeples are just silly. If you are going through the trouble of making molded plastic weapons and items, just give me the whole damn miniatures!

Those meeples are a combination of a near featureless item that could represent any player, combined with dressing up little dolls.

I guess any game with shaped meeples that you move around could be considered to have a high toy factor. Don't play with anyone who looks down on those who make the sound effects of a screeching car in Formula D or the hopping bunnies in Dixit.
