Winners of the Mums Choice Awards
Christmas in July 2013
Mums know best as they choose their top toys!
Months ahead of their release, some of the hottest toys for Christmas have already been decided by mums at home as the winners of the Mum’s Choice Awards from Christmas in July are revealed. A group of influential mummy bloggers (including me) who work with parenting website UKMums.tv, descended on the toy-specific press preview of the summer, Christmas in July this week. As mums always know best, they sought out the must-have toys that they know will be on their children’s wish lists. These unique awards give mums a platform for sharing their views on the toys that will be hot for Christmas from over 30 companies that exhibited.
As holders of the family purse strings, mums are the ones who decide which presents their little ones will be unwrapping, so gaining their approval can be crucial in ensuring that a product makes it to ‘must-have’ status, even before it launches!
