Scottish independent toy shop Grasshopper Toys has been named Britain’s Most Outstanding Online Toy Retailer.
The store was awarded the accolade in Corporate LiveWire’s 2015 Innovation and Excellence Awards.
Stocking some of the most iconic toys and boasting an extensive international online customer base, Grasshopper Toys is one of the biggest independent toy shops in Scotland.
“We are absolutely over the moon to have been given this award,” said company owner, Dr. Wendy Hamilton. “It is a great honour and we are delighted that all our hard work has been recognised in this way.”
Leah Jones, awards director of the 2015 Innovation and Excellence Awards Winner Guide, added: “The winners have not only proved to be resilient and creative but have also shown a willingness to adapt to the ever changing environment of their respective fields.”
The toy store suffered a setback in 2013 when a fire seriously damaged the shop shortly after its initial opening.
However, Grasshopper Toys has since “bounced back” and now offers a roster of sessions for young customers and contributes a regular science column for budding scientists in the Helensburgh Advertiser.
