Tiny Testers - Experts in Play
To make sure our toys are the best that they can be, we need to put them through their paces. That’s why we’re recruiting an elite team of Tiny Testers; little toy experts who know how to play with a toy to its full potential.
Could your little one be a Tiny Tester? To find the best, we invited mums, dads, guardians and grandparents to tell us about their little toy expert and to enter them into our Tiny Tester competition. Entries have now closed and our panel of judges are busy selecting the winning 6 Tiny Testers. We're are also running a competition for the public to identify our 20 most popular entries, as voted by you, who will receive a £50 credit to spend on this website! Voting closes at midday 1st October 2014.
What you can win!
On Saturday 11 October 2014 our Tiny Testers will be invited to join us at Little Tikes Toy Workshop in Milton Keynes for a fun-packed day of toy testing. Each child will be given a Starter Pack complete with a book to record their playtime discoveries, our top tips for filming and a video camera so parents can share their little one's adventures with families around the country. Each child will then be sent a range of toys to test, while parents capture their experiences on film. After the event, videos, recommendations and ratings from each of our Tiny Testers team will be featured on our website.
Our panel of expert judges will be selecting 2 children from each of our 3 play development age ranges: Infant, Toddler and Pre-school.
But there’s more; in addition to selecting our Tiny Testers, we will be awarding the most popular Tiny Tester profiles added to our Gallery with a £50 credit against purchase on the Little Tikes website.
