We are so excited to announce that Countdown, our hi-tech hide & seek toy, won at the 2019 Outdoor Toy Awards in London. In early June, when we sent an early prototype unit off, we had high hopes, but realistic expectations about what was going to happen. Going up against Nerf water guns, electric scooters and giant trampolines isn't something any new toy company really wants to be judged against. However, we know that Countdown is something unique, and our active, social gameplay is unlike anything else out there... and the kid judges at the Outdoor Toy Awards agreed by tapping Countdown as the winner in the Outdoor Sports category.
The Outdoor Toy Awards judging panel was comprised of kids aged 5-14 who had the hard job of judging dozens of toys. You can see Countdown and some of the other entrant toys on the Outdoor Toy Awards 2019 Winners Page.
Of course we're not done yet. As noted, we sent an early prototype off, which isn't the final product. Countdown is still undergoing active development and lots of play-testing, which feeds back into the design to make Countdown even better. Currently, we're working on new clock-stopping puzzles, better sounds, a slimmer design and more.
