Good Morning Bigjiggers!
Today is a very exciting day for us here at Bigjigs HQ as we are delighted to announce that our re-vamped Triangular Activity Centre
has won a Slow Toy Award
The Slow Toy movement
and its awards aim to recognise the 'real toys' on the market that are well made, inspire the mind and provide children far more than the noise and flashing lights commonly associated with the toys of today. The expert judges including; Peter Jenkinson from Toyology
, Al Boxall-Gordon from IzziwizziKids
, and three of the country's significant mummy blogger's including; Nicola from 'Monsters Funhouse
', Fiona from 'Mummys Little Stars
' and Kate from 'What me and the Boys say
Our Triangular Activity Centre
has been awarded by the judging panel for encouraging traditional play, boosting creative thinking and inspiring the development of one's own imagination.
The beautiful Triangular Activity Centre
, which features a colourful abacus on one side, a blackboard on the other and wooden letter and picture blocks on the third, is a great educational toy for children aged 1+. Each end also features colourful counting and animal sorters. This wonderful wooden toy offers a modern twist on a classic toy encouraging learning through play, enriching the educational experience. "We are delighted to have achieved this award; it has taken us the best part of a year to get this product from start to finish, from the design, manufacture, testing, packaging etc! We are so happy that all the hard work has paid off and that everyone is enjoying this classic toy!" Liz Ireland, Bigjigs Toys
All of the winners of the Slow Toy Awards can now be bought in Selfridges, London, otherwise our Triangular Activity Centre can be found on our website
