Summer essentials


After months of planning, weeks of grafting, sleepless nights all leading to a single day of off-the-scale-fun we can finally reveal the 2015 winners of our prestigious (yes really, we we’ve applied for a Queens seal) Outdoor Playtime Awards *Fanfare*. Under the watchful eyes of Beau from The Toy Farm, Bex Lindsay from childrens radio station Fun Kids and myself @toyologist we had a sugar-infused band of Toyminators to put our finalists through their paces, which they did with aplomb. They jumped, threw, pedalled, blasted, soaked, constructed, destructed and made plenty of noise before voting the best in show across ten categories, and so, the winners in list form follow, and here is an amazing video (even if I say so myself) of the days events.
