Outdoor Toy Awards 2023 – Winners Announcement


The winners of the Outdoor Toy Awards 2023 today receive their well-deserved gongs, ten categories were under scrutiny from the critics who attended the event last weekend.

With over 20 kids in attendance and seventy-PLUS toys to test it was a gruelling afternoon of fun in the sun all aided along with plenty of hydration and a questionable playlist supplied by co-organiser Nick Gibbs-McNeill.

With ten categories to find a winner for in each the testing was a serious endeavour by the Toyminators watched closely by the judges to assist in their selection for this years “Gold Award”, the top outdoor toy of the year.

“We’ve managed some national coverage with more to come and plenty of online activity to bolster the awareness of all our entries, the Kidzcoolit channels and Toyology together with their social outlets will further support all our entrants” Said Co-Founder of the awards Peter Jenkinson.

Nick Gibbs-McNeill the other half of the awards added “It was a logistical challenge but the brands we’ve worked with are so fully supportive of what we’re doing and every one of them worked closely with us to make this marvellous day happen”.

The ten categories are Climbing and Adventure, Sport and Splash Fun, Outdoor Games, Science and Nature, Ride On, Trampolines, PreSchool Play, Battle & Blaster Toys, Houses, Tents & Hideaways and Flying Toys.
