Turbospoke picks up Tillywig Toy award

Bicycle exhaust system scoops gold in one of top US toy awards programmes.

Turbospoke - the bicycle exhaust system which makes a child's bike look and sound like a motorbike - has scored a key accolade over in the US.

The product was awarded a 'Top Fun' gong at the Tillywig Toy Awards Program, which is presented to products that stand out in terms of exceptional design, construction and play value.

"We are over the moon with this award," said Tom Maxwell, the inventor of Turbospoke. "The USA and Canada are our largest and most successful markets and this high profile industry recognition will further secure Turbospoke's place in the minds of retailers and consumers."

Each Turbospoke comes with three different Motocards so the sound made can be tuned, plus a full set of 15 custom stickers and a motorcycle-style exchaust pipe.

Turbospoke is distributed in the US by Schylling Toys and by Ernest the Bear Toys in the UK and Ireland.
