These global awards will take place in September, and we are thrilled to announce we will be in the Best Innovative Product Design category.
The Junior Design Awards, run by magazine Junior, are considered one of the most respected awards within the family and children lifestyle sector and they have a well-deserved reputation for picking truly innovative and game-changing products.
For over a decade the awards have served as the perfect endorsement for brands, with the winners picked by a stellar panel of judges from across the design, lifestyle and parenting sectors. The awards are well-known within the industry for choosing a variety of both big-name organisations and smaller success-stories. Other nominees this year including Marks and Spencer, MK Kids and Little Prince London.
Speaking ahead of the awards, the Junior Design team said they were “blown away by the incredibly high standard of entries “.
They said: “we feel incredibly lucky that we continue to attract the most creative, innovative, and inspiring brands in the world of children’s design!”
Thumbsie®, which has recently celebrated its 9th birthday, has been a real labour of love for our founder, Jo Bates, and her team. From the very first Thumbsie® we sold to the present day, we have been determined to ensure that our product is innovative and eye-catching. We are proud that no matter what has happened in the ensuing 9 years, we have never lost our creative spark.
“It’s a massive honour to be shortlisted for Best Innovative Product Design at this year’s Junior Design Awards. Throughout our history, Thumbsie® have sought to innovate, to develop new ideas and designs and to ensure that children and families are attracted to our colourful, creative – and successful – product.
The fact that the Junior Design Awards are international really is the icing on the cake. We believe in our product and it’s a fantastic feeling to know that such an important name in the family lifestyle sector does too. “
