We are absolutely delighted to say that our Pojo and the Chest of Dreams Create and Show kit was awarded three stars in the Early Years Excellence awards.

The judges said “The Pojo and the Chest of Dreams kit had a vast impact on children’s listening and attention skills. The children were able to interact with, and take part using the puppets, which is also good for social interaction and building confidence.”

It’s good to know our Pojo is such a little star!!

We were also delighted to see Little Livello was also a finalist in the maths category so it’s good to know that we’ve got a whole range of award winning resources.

To see the rest of the winners we’ve attached the awards special for you to have a read. Awards Special

Look what we won!!!

Creative Steps Creative Play AwardsWe’ve won the Creative Steps Creative Play Award for Teaching Resource for 4-7 year olds for our Pojo and the Knights of Chepstow Castle Create and Show puppet making kit.

So it looks as if Pojo has hit the mark!!

pojoCutOut1NewchepstowknightsEYFinishedWe are absolutely thrilled to bits to win this award. To see Pojo making such a big impact with the children in such a short space of time is fantastic. The children have all got very attached to him when we’ve tested our kits in schools and nurseries. We know that children love to get involved in making things and they can learn such a lot through stories and creative activities without realising it which makes these cross-curricular storytelling resources a great teaching aid for busy teachers and nursery practitioners.

Dawn Hopley of Creative Steps said that, “The Creative Play awards are the only awards designed specifically to recognise excellence in creative play products, kits and teaching resources. Each product is tested by three independent judges – parents, childcare professionals, nursery practitioners and primary school teachers. The results recognise the best products available to enhance creative development in young children and are beneficial to the consumer when making purchasing decisions.”
