The winners of the 2019 Creative Play Awards have been revealed

Orchard Toys, Ravensburger, and John Adams are just some of the names to feature among the list of winners of this year’s prestigious 2019 Creative Play Awards.

Sponsored and organised by Creative Steps magazine, which promotes creative play as vital in a child’s development, the awards recognise the best products available to enhance creative development in young children. The awards are often beneficial to the consumer when making purchasing decisions.

John Hopley, editor of Creative Steps, commented: “Now in its 12th year, the quality and increased number of entries in the 2019 Awards has been exceptional and shows just how esteemed these awards have become, recognising the best creative play toys, games and resources.

“We feel it is vital to have the products tested by end-users and have sent out more than 100 products to independent testers in homes, schools and childcare settings around the country. The competition was very strong, showing the importance of learning through creative play for children and the products that allow them to do so.”
