“This category of toy is incredibly important to kids of all ages, getting them out and about, and facilitating collaborative play with their parents, siblings and friends," said Jenkinson.

"In an age where tech is king, it’s great to see that there is such a wide range of playthings on the market designed for the great outdoors – this list showcases the very best of the best.” 

Fun Kids' Bex Lindsay said: “The energy at the Outdoor Playtime Awards from all involved was amazing, I had such a superb time – possibly playing a little too much.”
