At an awards ceremony held in London on October 4, Right Start Magazine named Kurio as the Best Toy Overall Winner in the 3+ category, while also awarding the tablet with Gold in the High Tech Category.
The magazine’s testers said: “We were so impressed with the Kurio. The children have downloaded just about every game they can and have been using it to surf the internet to find information for school projects. The parental controls are easy to operate, allowing you to control how long they can play and providing peace of mind.”
Kurio also featured in Android magazine’s ‘Android gadgets for children and big kids alike’ feature and came out on top ahead of five other products, earning a five-star Editor’s Choice Award.
The magazine said: “The Kurio 7 tablet doubles up as a standard ICS tablet, but really shines when switched to its ‘kids tablet’ form. The tablet adopts a colourful and engaging display for youngsters, and includes a wide range of pre-installed games for them to enjoy.”
These latest awards add to a growing list of accolades, which includes:
- Gadget Show Live – Number one kids gadget at Toy Fair 2012
- Mums Choice Top Toys for Christmas – Top five electronic
- UKMumsTV Top Five Tech Toys
- John Lewis Top Ten Toys for Christmas (Kurio 10)
- Smyths Top Ten Toys for Christmas
Tracey Devine, UK marketing director at InspirationWorks, commented: “We are absolutely delighted with these accolades. We knew we had a great product with Kurio, but it is wonderful to have this reinforced by such high profile publications.”
