Explore & More Follow-Bee Crawl Toy Awarded the “World of Toys” Category Prize

Skip Hop's Award Winning EXPLORE & MORE Follow-Bee Crawl Toy

Our incredible team is honored to be recognized by the leaders in our industry and we are proud to add the Explore & More Follow-Bee Crawl Toy to our growing list of award-winning products.

Skip Hop’s EXPLORE & MORE Follow-Bee Crawl Toy earned a Kind + Jugend 2017 Innovation Award last week. Winning in the “World of Toys” Category, the crawl toy received top marks in innovation, safety, design, user-friendliness and quality of workmanship. The two-in-one developmental toy was designed to grow with baby and encourages three stages of play: discover and exploration, motor skills and sensory development.

“This is our very first K&J Innovation Award--one of the top awards in the juvenile industry,” says Michael Diamant, Skip Hop’s co-founder and general manager. “Our incredible team is honored to be recognized by the leaders in our industry and we are proud to add the Explore & More Follow-Bee Crawl Toy to our growing list of award-winning products.” Adds co-founder and creative director Ellen Diamant: “The colorful bee character is irresistible to babies, and the interactive design—complete with motorized movement, lights and music—really makes it stand out from the crowd.”

This achievement marks Skip Hop’s third major industry award in the playtime category in the past three years. Previously, the brand’s Roll Around Rattle was named best infant toy at the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair, and its EXPLORE & MORE Activity Center received a JPMA Innovation Award earlier this year. This brings their total accolades for 2017 to nine, including achievements like Baby Maternity Magazine Awards’ 2017 Product of the Year Award and Creative Child Magazine Awards’ 2017 Top Toy of the Year Award.

Held annually in Cologne, Germany, Kind + Jugend is the world’s leading trade fair for infant and children’s products. The show presented its first Innovation Award in 2005; selections are made by a jury in the weeks prior to the trade show.
