Progressive Preschool Awards: Your 2022 Product finalists

The countdown to the Progressive Preschool Awards 2022 is well and truly on, with the hotly contested Product category finalists being confirmed today (14 October).

This year’s prestigious Product categories have been highly anticipated, with eight finalists lining up for each of the 12 accolades, underlining the wealth of top products in the market across the board and the strong number of entries received through the awards online portal.

This year sees the introduction of a special Eco Award, while there are also now accolades for both licensed and non-licensed toys, plus wheeled goods and car seats.

“We really have been blown away with the quality and volume of entries we had this year for the PPS Awards; it really has been exceptional,” commented Jo Pilcher, publication and event manager for Progressive Preschool. “While there are undeniably issues facing the overall business due to the cost of living crisis, the preschool sector is nothing if not resourceful and resilient. We cannot wait to come together on 15 November to celebrate everything the industry has achieved and have a huge ‘preschool’ party!”

The shortlist in the Marketing category has also be confirmed and can be viewed by clicking here.
