Ravensburger picks up three gongs at Practical Pre-School awards

Ravensburger has scooped three accolades at this year’s Practical Pre-School and Parent Teacher Update Awards.

Taking place last week, the toy firm was named the overall winner in the Classic Toys and Games category for its Teletubbies My First Floor Puzzle.

The second award was given to the Big Ben with Clock 3D Puzzle, which won Gold in the Toys and Games category for children over five.

Finally, the third award was given to Thomas and Friends My First Memory, which bagged the Silver gong in the Classic Toys and Games category.

Sindy Randall and Sarah Stevens, product managers and were responsible for developing the Teletubbies puzzle, at Ravensburger, said: “We identified the need for a simple floor puzzle for children aged two years plus.

“It’s essential that children can complete the challenge of assembling a puzzle, because it encourages them to move on to bigger challenges, and builds confidence in all areas of their life.

“Puzzles are a great way to develop colour and shape matching skills, hand-eye co-ordination and manual dexterity. But for these elements to work really well, the design is key.”
