Toyology Outdoor Toy Awards 2013
Springfree was chosen as a winner in the 2013 Toyology Outdoor Toy Awards. The selection process for this award is quite unique and it makes us very proud to have been selected!
Kids aged between 5 and 16 years old were the chief testers, along with teachers, parents, mummy bloggers and journalists. Peter Jenkinson, editor of Toyology.tv, was hosting proceedings.
Junior testers were given guidelines to help judge the entries, but the overall fun factor was the deciding factor. Adult judges commented on more specific attributes such as durability, longevity, value for money and originality with fun value also considered.
