Rachel Lowe jointly awarded Game of the Year

Published on: 14th November 2019

Rachel Lowe was presented with the Game of the Year Award for Jumanji by the Toy Retailers Association (TRA) yesterday.

Rachel Lowe has been recognised for the role she played in the 2018 success of the Jumanji board game. This is in conjunction with the award given in January to Spin Master at the Toy Industry Awards. It was revealed after the ceremony that Rachel Lowe had jointly distributed the product in the UK during the year and was therefore entitled to be a joint recipient of the award.

Rachel’s Game of the Year Award was presented at this year’s DreamToys event on Wednesday 13th November at St Mary’s Church in Marylebone, London, by TRA chairman Alan Simpson.

Rachel Lowe said: “I am absolutely delighted to be receiving the Game of the Year award for the Jumanji Board Game. It recognises the hard work and effort I put into getting it to the number one ranking on Amazon when I launched it two years ago and also the hard work of my distributor, Heathside Trading, which achieved volume sales throughout the duration of my contract with Sony.”

Alan Simpson, Chairman of the TRA added: “We are sorry that Rachel’s role in the success of Jumanji did not come to light until after the toy industry awards but we are pleased to be able to retrospectively present this well-deserved Game of the Year Award.”
