Skip Hop wins prestigious Spielwarenmesse Toy Award 2015

The Skip Hop Explore & More Roll Around Rattles have won a Toy Award 2015, the prestigious prize of the Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Germany.

Presented at the Toy Fair’s opening ceremony, this internationally recognised prize is awarded annually and is a special acknowledgement within the global toy industry.

Winning in the Baby & Infant (0-2 y ears) category, Skip Hop’s Explore & More Roll Around Rattles received top marks for quality, creativity, safety and educational benefits. The panel of expert judges commented: “A pleasant material, pretty colours and shapes and lots of ways to hold the Roll Around Rattles – you just have to reach out and grab them. And if they drop onto the floor, they jump back, but very quietly, which is a real treat for parents. The Roll Around Rattles help with the motor development of little ones and foster their haptic abilities.”

The three other categories were Preschool (3-5 years), School Kids (6-10 years) and Teenager & Family (11+ years), and together, the four winners beat 601 products from a total of 318 exhibitors.

Available in the UK in the hedgehog and owl designs, the Roll Around Rattle’s friendly face engages baby, ready for plenty of developmental play. Suitable for ages 3 months plus, easy-to-grasp openings in the Rattle’s flexible body helps small hands build dexterity. The colourful Rattle encourages rolling, shaking and tossing, while the beads and rubberised details for teething offer more for little ones to touch and explore.
