BigJigs Toys has been named Best Small Family Business of the Year at this year’s Red Ribbon Awards.

The family-run firm fought off 700 nominations to land the award at a ceremony in Goldsmiths’ Hall in London last week.

The wooden toy manufacturer was recognised for its achievements and contributions to the toy industry, performance of the business and its commitments to supporting the high street retailer.

Liz Ireland, BigJigs director, said: “We are absolutely ecstatic to have won this award. To win it out of 700 nominations really is something, we are chuffed to bits.

“We have to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the business over the years, and we look forward to making the next 29 years of business as successful as the last.”

Founded in 1985, BigJigs toys has grown from a small shed in Liz Ireland’s garden to a global firm selling toys in over 35 countries.

Meanwhile, now in its fifth year, the Red Ribbon Awards celebrates Britain’s finest family-run businesses.

Previous winners have included Michel roux Jr, The Entertainer, The Cambridge Satchel company and more.
