We set up Yummikeys on 1 July 2017 and have had a pretty incredible first year. We've been busier than we could have imagined and had some really wonderful customer feedback and blogger reviews. But the icing on the cake for us had been to find out that we've been shortlisted for a Junior Design Award 2018, for the Best Eco Toy Award. There were over 250 businesses shortlisted and as far as we know, only 3 are from small businesses.
Our toys are 100% plastic free and made to last a lifetime as a keepsake and to be played with by subsequent children. They're non-toxic and we are careful to reduce our environmental footprint. So it means a huge amount to have this recognised in our shortlisting.
We'll find out the winners in early August. They'll be judged by a panel of industry experts, social media influencers and parents so we're so happy that our toys will get exposure to all of these important people. We'll let you know our final position as soon as we know.
