A TOY firm in Hyndburn has played its way into a fresh awards triumph.

Accrington-based Halilit can enter one of their busiest times of the year on the back of a victory in the Progressive Pre School Awards.

The Abbey Street company won out in the best infant development range category at the ceremony, at the Grosvenor Hotel in London.

Judging is based on votes cast by some of the market's most knowledgeable buyers, from the likes of John Lewis and Boots.

Judith Stark, managing director, said "We are on a roll. This award was for the Koala Daydream Collection from Taf Toys,

"We are delighted to be the UK distributor for Taf . It means such a lot to be chosen by the industry's buyers too."

Earlier this year Halilit's products also found favour at the Made for Mums Toy Awards.

Their Edushape textured pop-up blocks and the All Around Me Gym, from Taf, were named gold medal winners.

And a silver was achieved for Taf's Hunny Bunny Stacker and a bronze for Battat’s Dalmatian Vet Kit.
