Outdoor Toy Awards shortlist revealed

Finalists for this year's awards named after overwhelming amount of submissions

After an overwhelming response to the Toyology 2018 Outdoor Toy awards, the shortlist has finally been revealed.

The presenters Jaadin the Kid and Amazing Arabella, together with Toyologist Peter Jenkinson, now have the list of outdoor playthings for the finals.

Held 17 June at St Matthews Academy in South East London, the crack team over over 50 Toyminators will put the playthings through their paces and vote for the top three across each of the awards categories. These winners will be published across consumer sites Mumii and Kidzcoolit and on the Toyology website with video content also being shared across all of their social platforms.

The presenters will also be doing their bit with category winners getting exposure across their social platforms too with a reach of well over two million and their legions of fans already excited and looking forward to further sharing the content they post of the event. Media partner DC Thompson will feature a DPS in both the EPIC and Sweet magazines of the category overall winners, plus make noise ahead of the event about their involvement.

Event organiser Stuart Austin of Toyology said: 'It’s been incredible how much interest we’ve had and really sets the scene or this to just get bigger and better every year. The media reach we’ve managed to confirm has been a huge contributory factor to the amount of event entries we’ve received.'

Firms making the finals are: BERG Toys , Hasbro, Tactic Games, Plum Products, Sportspower, KidKraft, HTI, Jakks Pacific, MyRebounder, TKC, Big Potato, Zuru, Zimpli Kids, Helix, Parrot, Wind Designs, Kettler, Recreation, Rollplay, Little Tikes, Thames and Kosmos,, Spinmaster, Funrise, Flair, Feber, Iconbit, Character and Tobar.
