The Progressive Preschool Awards is urging suppliers and distributors to send in nominations for their top retailers.

Retailers can nominate themselves, and the Awards has nine different retail categories spanning nursery, toys, gift and apparel, each recognising 'excellence in the retailing of preschool products'.

Kids Stuff Toymaster in Wells won Best Independent Toy Retailer of Preschool Product in 2013.

“Winning a Progressive Preschool Awards was just amazing,” said managing director Lee Borastero.

“The ceremony was unreal and when our name was called out it was fantastic – little old us we thought. Three of our local papers picked up the story which certainly increased our footfall. The trophy stood proudly in our window for a number of weeks and many people asked about it.”

Rob Willis, publisher of Progressive Preschool magazine, added: “It is evident from last year’s winners how significant being nominated - and winning these awards can be. We hope the whole industry gets involved again in 2014 and nominate for the stores they feel deserving of a trophy. ”

To nominate, download the relevant form or enter online at, and send it back before September 3rd 2014.

The Progressive Preschool Awards takes place at The Dorchester Hotel, London on Thursday November 13th.
