2019 Outdoor Toy Awards winners revealed

Published on: June 18th, 2019

Thames & Kosmos, Chad Valley and Rollplay are among those that bagged awards.

Last weekend, ‘Toyminators’ of all ages gathered together at St Matthews Academy in South East London to put this year’s shortlisted selection of outdoor toys to the test.

The team at Kidzcoolit were on hand to assist in managing proceedings, with kids and parents alike putting all of the toys through some serious testing before the final selections were made.

“Thanks to the kids for taking their tasks so seriously and the parents who attended for discussing – at length – their favourites and the reasons behind their choices – some superb insight was gained,” said Peter Jenkinson, founder of the awards. “Next year, we’re planning the 2020 awards as a big celebration ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, to get everyone in the sporting spirit.”
