The categories are: Climbing & Adventure; Sport & Splash Fun; Outdoor Board Games; Outdoor Tech Toys; Ride-ons; Trampolines; Pre-school; Outdoor Play; Battle and Blaster Toys; Houses, Tents and Hideaways and Nature and Science.

Playtime PR’s Lesley Singleton said: “The categories have been designed to ensure we cover all angles of outdoor play style, with Nature and Science even allowing us to look at products which bring the outdoors in and perhaps offer a rainy-day outdoor-themed play solution. We were also keen to ensure the categories cover toys for all ages, from baby and preschool right through to teen.”

A shortlist of five products per category will be taken forward to the final judging day in June and the 10 winning outdoor toys will be revealed shortly afterwards. A video showcasing the judging process and winning toys will be released on social media.
