ThumbsUp!’s Dancing Cat Speaker won the Hot Novelty Gift of the Year award from Giftware Association at Spring Fair International.

The Dancing Cat Speakers had a successful 2011 after appearing on Channel 5’s The Gadget show. After the appearance on the show retail partners were inundated with orders and it became thumbsUp!’s most successful product for the year.

The speakers are compatible with a wide range of audio devices through a 3.5mm input jack and while songs are playing the cat dances along.

Wojtek Kolan, head of business development at thumbsUp! comments: “We are over the moon that the Dancing Cat has won the Hot Novelty category at the Gift of the Year awards. The Dancing Cat is a product that we are very proud of and one that is well-loved by our customers and the end consumer alike. This year’s Spring Fair is already extremely significant for us; as well as launching over 50 new products, we are also unveiling a refreshed look at the show and have announced five new product categories. Winning this award tops off a very successful 2011 and lays some positive foundations for the year to come.”

Furthermore, two of thumbsUp!’s products were commended. The iWallet and the Roller Wheel got recognition in the Fashion Jewellery and Accessories and Kids categories respectively.

ThumbsUp! will be at stand L18-M19 in Hall 3
