We’re in the running for another major award! Arckit GO Colours has been nominated as a finalist by The Toy Industry Association (TIA) for their new category of Construction Toy of the Year in the world-renowned Toy of the Year Awards 2017. The winners will be announced in time for the Awards Ceremony on the 17th February, just before we prepare to show off our new Arckit range at the Toy Show in New York.

Since the launch of our new range, we’ve had many positive reviews on Arckit’s success within education and as a natural progression from standard building block toys of the past. Arckit is widely used within schools and universities as a practical way to teach STEM/STEAM skills to students. Our kits are also a fun way for budding creators to learn fundamental design and architecture skills for the future.

As well as being named a finalist in the Toy of the Year Awards, our Arckit GO Colours kit has also received universal praise from the toy industry for its striking ‘avant-garde’ looks and ‘museum-worthy’ design quality. Consisting of brightly coloured modular components, the set invites creators to use their imaginations and connect the architectural pieces to build their own unique scaled model designs.

Arckit GO Colours is already one of our most popular kits for kids to experience the freedom of spontaneous design and creative play. It’s intuitive to use, highly educational, and we are pleased to see that it is now inspiring the next generation of architects through hands-on learning. We have even launched a brand new Arckit Education Programme with exciting courses for budding architects. Click here for more information.

We’ll ensure you’re kept updated on the Toy of the Year Awards. Now we’re through to the finals, the next steps are for a committee of industry experts, academics and inventors/designers to assess the nominees with a focus on those that are creative and educational, have innovative packaging and promotional strategy, offer excellent play value and are successful in the marketplace.

Thanks again for your continued support. Fingers crossed for another Arckit award!
