DKL (Hama Beads), Ravensburger (Puzzle Ball Globe) and John Adams (Coinmaker) each gained praise from retail and the industry alike for their efforts over the past 12 months.

Awards were given out in front of 400 industry peers at the Toy of the Year Awards organised by the Toy Retailers Association.

"There are some great toys and toy companies out there that, perhaps because of the type of product or vastness of the range, are less likely to win the big awards. But tonight we have put this right for three very special companies and three very special products," said TRA president Val Stedham.
