Suppliers are ‘thrilled’ to be PPSA finalists

Finalists in the product categories of the Progressive Preschool Awards are continuing to celebrate their inclusion in the highly sought-after list.

Nicola McQuillan, marketing director at H&A, which has two products in the finalist list for the Best Preschool Gift category, said: “We are over the moon to be nominated for TWO PPS Awards, we love being a part of this exciting, fast-paced and innovative industry.

“We will be raising a toast on the day to our fantastic partnerships at Hasbro and Paramount, their continued support and inspiration is always valued. Congratulations to all the other nominees, it’s going to be a great day.”

Rob Broadhurst, commercial director, Aykroyds, commented: “We are thrilled to have been nominated this year in the Best Preschool Apparel Range category – and not once, but twice. It’s extremely gratifying to receive nominations such as these as it’s nice public recognition of the hard work that the teams put in throughout the year – and obviously the PPS Awards is my favourite event of the year so I’m doubly chuffed.”

Orchard Toys has been named a finalist in Best Non-Licensed Toy Range and Best Preschool Gift Range. Chloe Chambers, senior marketing executive at Orchard Toys, said: “We’re really proud to have multiple Orchard Toys products selected as Progressive Preschool Awards 2023 finalists.

“For all of our products we work with early years professionals, teachers, and children to ensure they’re educationally sound, age appropriate, engaging, and fun; so, for these values to be recognised is really special. Keeping everything crossed for the big reveal in November.”

The winners will be revealed at a lavish lunchtime celebration at the Royal Lancaster London on Tuesday 14 November.

Finalists in the Retail, Marketing and Distributor/Wholesaler categories will be announced shortly.
