WHO: Plum Play COLOURS by Plum – Wood Collection

WHAT: A beautiful teal blue, wooden garden playhouse with veranda and matching picnic table.

WHY: What child wouldn’t want their own special hideaway in the garden? Especially if it looked this gorgeous. Whether it’s a club house, a doll’s retreat, a tea salon or just a place to play house, this wooden beauty would be the perfect place to let imaginations run wild while adding a magical touch to the garden that adults will love too. Our judges loved the minimal but cosy style of this house that would work just as well in a contemporary setting as a more traditional one. The coordinating picnic table that gives kids the option to eat al fresco in the milder months was also a huge hit and the panel were all in agreement that this range really would encourage kids to spend longer outside in the fresh air. Our judges wrote in their notes:

The ultimate Wendy house that surely we all dreamt about as children?

Love the veranda so you can dress the house with flower pots, bunting etc and make it your own.

Best Toy Design 3-5 yrs | Junior Design Awards 2019

WINNER: SILVER BEST TOY DESIGN (2-4 YEARS)

WHO: PINTO – Black Mountain

WHAT: A super light-weight bike that grows with your child. Featuring a patented EPOK growing technology, the PINTO Black Mountain grows and adapts with the rider as their ability increases. When kids have mastered balance-biking and are ready to pedal, you can install the pedals and the superlight belt-drive system, to send them off pedalling with confidence.

WHY: Our judges loved this sleek looking bike that comes in four super bright, eye-catching colour-ways that any kid would be proud to ride. The versatility and longevity of this bike were particularly applauded by our judges who were super impressed by the fact that it can convert from balance bike to full on pedal bike meaning less new purchases needed. Our judges wrote in their notes:

Love the powder blue and orange colourway and the cool design of the frame and seat. Great that it can be converted from balance to pedal bike!
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
Love the multifunctionality of this bike. Anything that means less bikes piled in my hallway is a great thing as far as I’m concerned. Fab design values too.

WHAT: A redesign of the iconic Mini Micro, improving every feature to create the ultimate smooth and safe ride for pre-schoolers up.
