Best Toy and Gift Retailer - SILVER
It's with a warm heart and a big smile that we say thanks to Junior Magazine for awarding us the Best Toy and Gift Retailer, the Silver category.
What we do is so much more fulfilling when someone gives us a pat on the back. What can I say? We're only human.
What a super title to be given, more so when we share it with such great company like Hedgehog, Scout & Co. and Bobby Rabbit. Our comrades in arms! We're taking on one mainstream corporation toy maker at a time and continue to be bowled over by the incredible design and creativity in the world of children's design. Thank you to all the wonderful designers out there who inspire us to carve out our own path. We're convinced that we're at the start of a revolutionary toy movement to bring open minded little citizens into the world.
We've seen the best of the best in children's design proudly showing off the Junior Design badges. Junior Design badges are proudly displayed on the best windows of the best high street boutiques around Europe. (Including us in 2013 and 2014, 2015 we didn't compete as we were relaunching our site)
Here's a little bit about the brilliant panel of judges included singer Rachel Stevens, TV weather presenter, meteorologist and Junior columnist Kirsty McCabe, designer and Junior columnist Olivia Rubin, journalist Alison Perry of notanothermummyblog.com, blogger Susie Verrill of My Milo and Me, Dan Stockley and Zoe Goldsmith of fashion brand Hucklebones, blogger Eimear Varian Barry, Consumer editor Alison Alexander, and Junior's content editor, Catherine Hudson.
