The Tillwig Spring 2013 Toy Award winners have been listed, including Brainstorm's Aqua Dragons (which picked up the Sterling Fun Award).
In January, the British Toy and Hobby Association also awarded Aqua Dragons the Best New Hobby Toy of 2013.
Brainstorm is now calling upon the independent trade to book their orders in advance of the next tranche of TV advertising. Nick Saunders, sales and marketing director at Brainstorm, said: “We have been forced to allocate stock following our Easter TV campaign but we have more stock on the way. The Toymaster show is a perfect time for independent toy stores to secure an order in advance of our next blast of TV in June.”
Other toys recognised in the awards include the Inventors Lab from Hanz, PicWits from Mindware and Rock-A-Bye Bear from Gund, as well as Strider's No-Pedal Balance Bike and more.
