Practical Pre-School Awards
The Practical Pre-School Awards have been designed to identify and reward excellence in the field of educational equipment, childcare, books and toys, suitable for children aged from birth to eight years old for use in professional childcare and educational settings. These include private and state nurseries, pre-schools, playgroups, childminders and infant schools and after-school clubs.
What the testers said: ITeddy had immediate appeal to children of all ages in the given range and beyond! Adult assistance was required by younger testers to download files onto the media player, but all children had great fun discovering what it could do. The media player had an impressive specification for the price and was able to perform multiple functions. Very portable – even testers as young as four soon unclipped the media player from the bear, preferring instead to wear it on their belts.
