CTSI’s chief executive Leon Livermore said: “This competition is a great way to engage children and young people in a fun way while raising awareness about the importance of safety features in the design of toys. The key elements the judges are looking for in the entries are a fun and different design and clear attention to the safety of it in use.   

Roland Earl, director general of British Toy and Hobby Association, said: " We were hugely impressed with the excellence and creativity demonstrated this year. The high standard of entries received made deciding on a winner an extremely difficult task for the judges! I would like to thank all of the schools and students that took part in 2015, and we look forward to seeing next years entries'. "

The Playsafe stand took a new approach for 2015. The stand had a beach theme with cup cakes, palm trees and animals.
