Toy Hub calls for entries for the Stikbot Oscars

Published on: February 3rd, 2016

The independent toy shop is launching the competition to find the best Stikbot video.

toyhub480The Dunblane based shop is calling for kids of all ages to create their own video using Brainstorm’s Stikbots in a bid to win a special Oscar.

The competition opened on Monday 1st February and is running until 29th February, when the winners will be announced. Toy Hub is supporting the competition with a social media campaign.

Gerard Gourley, of Toy Hub, told Toy World: “I had this idea to do a Stikbots competition as we were aware that our children and the local children were already into it. Whilst on the Brainstorm stand at Toy Fair, Nick Saunders expressed his enthusiasm and agreed to supply prizes for the competition, which we are currently awaiting.”

There is no age limit for entrants, and Toy Hub is encouraging fans to create both original videos and remakes of movie scenes using the Stikbot characters.

“Our son Jake was in store last weekend giving demos on how to use the Stikbots, and we will be posting tutorials on social media in coming weeks,” Gerard continued. “We’re expecting around 50-100 entrants, and are still on the search for a good judging panel.”

Entrants can submit their videos to the Toy Hub Facebook page.
