A raft of familiar licensing names are in the running for accolades at this year’s Progressive Preschool Awards – this year celebrating its ten year anniversary event on 15 November 2022 at the Royal Lancaster London.
Licensed names have once again come up trumps in the product category awards shortlist, with the apparel sector faring well via Disney deals from Character.com, Fashion UK and Dennicci, George and Peppa showing up with Misirli and Character.com from Fashion UK, while heritage characters have also shone through with Sophie la giraffe and Winnie the Pooh.
In addition to a strong turnout across apparel, licensed ranges also dominate across the Best Licensed Toy Range, Best STEM/Education Range, Best Preschool Publishing Range and more – see the full list of finalists here.
