New category introduced for 2018 following NPD data which revealed a healthy rise in the Kidult sector.
Stuart commented: “We did think at first it might just be electric scooters and skateboards, or kite buggies and boards, but we’ve had requests from Zorb Ball manufacturers, outdoor pool table distributors and several inflatable outfits asking where they might sit in the category list.”
Toyology has therefore created the new category in the hopes that a multitude of kids’ outdoor toy brands will come on-board.
The awards’ partnership with DC Thompson and social media stars Amazing Arabella and Jaadin the Kid should ensure a decent ROI for entrants, with winners getting an even bigger boost from added publicity and awareness.
