Rainbow Awards for Toy Excellence...The Winners

Today, the results of the Rainbow Toy Awards were announced.  Over the past few months, testers have been giving toys a thorough and rigorous testing. Children across the country have been enjoying the toys and the parents or carers have relayed the results back, thinking about play value, quality, longevity, the packaging and value for money.  The results have been collated and the winner and highly commended runner up announced in each of ten categories.

With Christmas coming, here is the list of Rainbow Award winning toys which will help you make an informed choice when shopping for presents!
