Toys set to be rated by unforgiving Toyminators

 

We’ve been working our socks off, our fingers to the bone, like dogs, as busy as bees – Well you get the drift. Here at Toyology Towers we’re passionate about getting people some outdoor playtime and so set up the UK’s only dedicated awards to celebrate outdoor toys. Last week myself @toyologist, Bex from Fun Kids Radio and rising YouTube star Beau from his Toy Farm took an extensive list of toys across ten categories and shortlisted three in each category to take forward to our finals this week. We’ll have twenty Toyminators putting the our list to the test and coming up with a winner in each category – It should be quite a bit of fun.” “We’ll be back” to report on the results.
