Screen-free Coding Shines At The 2019 Toy Of The Year (TOTY) Awards: Botley™ The Coding Robot From Learning Resources® Wins Innovative Toy Of The Year

DRUCKEN

VERNON HILLS, Ill., Feb. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout its 35-year history, Learning Resources® has dedicated itself to developing toys on the forefront of what children need to learn and how they are best inclined to learn it -- through play. Now, its efforts to provide the earliest possible screen-free coding experiences to kids have earned the educational toy company its first ever Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award. The award for Innovative Toy of the Year was given last night to Botley™ the Coding Robotat the annual awards gala presented by the Toy Association.  Botley engages children and sparks curiosity about coding in a fun, friendly, hands-on way, all without the use of a screen.

In 2018, Botley helped define a new category of screen-free coding toys. Last night's TOTY tops a list of more than 13 accolades and awards for the screen-free coding robot including "Best of CES" by Reuters and "Best Toy of the Year 2018" by Parents magazine. Children as young as five can learn to code with Botley, detecting objects, programming if/then logic, following looping commands and taking on obstacle courses.

"Our company is proud to engage future coders, engineers and scientists, and we are thrilled to receive the Innovative Toy of the Year TOTY Award for Botley the Coding Robot," said Learning Resources CEO, Rick Woldenberg. "This recognition honors our commitment to inspiring a love of learning in all children."

With other category finalists including Harry Potter™ Wizard Training™ from JAKKS Pacific, the K'NEX Thrill Rides Bionic Blast™ Roller Coaster Building Set, Wow! Stuff's Mystery Flying Snitch and Thames & Kosmos's Sensors Alive: Bring Physics to Life!, the coveted industry nod was given specifically to the 77-piece Botley the Coding Robot Activity Set, which allows kids to start coding with Botley right out of the box in addition to building obstacle courses, mazes and more.

Following Botley's success, Learning Resources' new Coding Critters, already the winner of Parents magazine's 2019 "Best of CES" award, continues the company's mission of introducing screen-free coding, now to preschoolers as young as four, through storybook coding adventures with adorable interactive pets. Both products will be on display at the 2019 New York International Toy Fair through February 19 in the Learning Resources Booth (#403). Also be sure to check out Learning Resources' Director of Product Development, Tom Runtz, on the STEM/STEAM Toy Panel with other leading industry experts Sunday, February 17 in Level 1, Hall 1E, room 1E09.
