We’re excited to announce that two of our products have been selected for The Licensing Awards 2015! The Star Wars animatronic talking plush range featuring Lightsaber Battle Yoda and Roar & Rage Chewbacca have been nominated for The Best Licensed Toys Category.
The winners will be revealed at the Licensing Awards event which will be held on Tuesday, September 15th 2015.
Our very own Robyn Cowling has been named as this year’s ToyNews Woman of the Year and picked up the accolade at a special event held at Home House on Thursday, July 16th 2015, where Cowling’s win was revealed via a video featuring her colleagues talking about why she deserved the title.
“It wasn’t expected at all,” said Cowling.
“As the people came on the screen, I realised I knew them and then Andy Oddie [Underground Toys founder] came on and I couldn’t hear anything but the thumping of blood through my ears and I though ‘Oh, I have to go up now’. I’m thrilled.
“I love the toy and licensing industries and it’s a very close knit community, so it’s quite an accolade to have been nominated by my peers and to have won.”
We’re extremely proud of Robyn and all she’s achieved for Underground Toys.
