NUREMBERG 2016: Bunch O Balloons, KosmoBits and Globber 5 in 1 named ToyAward winners

Spielwarenmesse has named its four ToyAward winners for this year’s show.

In the Baby & Infant category (0 to 2 years), Globber’s Globber 5 in 1 triumphed.

The Globber 5 in 1 transforms into a fully-fledged scooter with just a few adjustments.

‘The jury was not only impressed by the design, but also how simply the product could be adjusted for the various stages, its high-quality finish and its value for money’, read a statement from Spielwarenmesse.

In the Pre-School category (3 to 5 years), Revell’s Junior Kit scooped the prize.

The jury praised the product’s “solid workmanship and added value”.

Zuru’s Bunch O Balloons triumphed in the School Kids category (6 to 10 years).

The jury, who thought this was a money-spinner in the making, was “a superb product at a reasonable price”.

Finally, in the Teenager and Family category (11 years and older), Kosmos’ KosmoBits came out on top.

With a controller board and four sensor characters, kids play through the app, level by level, solving programming puzzles and the jury deemd it ‘a top-class science kit.’

The winners of the ToyAward are presenting innovative components in traditional toys, while illustrating the technical progress made in the industry.
