London XX October 2017, Jumbo’s new Dessineo ‘Learn to Draw’ educational learning toy has seen huge success, since its launch in July, in this year’s awards. Dessineo has received seven consumer and industry recognised awards over the past four months as well as recommendations from a leading independent expert on play and child development.
The award success includes several popular and influential consumer awards, from the Right Start Awards, Loved by Parents (Two Platinum Awards), Made for Mums and Practical Pre-School (Overall Gold Winner). With categories covering Best Simulative Toy, Best Activity Toy, Best Arts & Crafts and Best Education & Learning Toy, the Dessineo ‘Learn to Draw’ has also received the ‘recommended’ status from Fundamentally Children and is now featured in the renowned Good Toy Guide.
“The Dessineo ‘Learn to Draw’ provides children with an aid for creating pictures they can truly be proud of. Our testers really enjoyed letting their creativity flow and were impressed with the outcomes, easily creating their own masterpieces. The set starts children off tracing and copying, but this helps them pick up certain techniques that will translate to freehand drawing. This is also an excellent way for younger children who are learning to write, to improve their control of a pen/pencil by practicing different line shapes,” said experts at Fundamentally Children.
The Dessineo ‘Learn to Draw’ educational learning toy is perfect for stimulating the creativity and imaginations of young children by teaching them how to draw various shapes, pictures and objects, rather than just tracing an already completed image. There are 30 different drawing stencil templates that each has four progressive outlines of the drawings that children will learn to create. What makes the Dessineo even more useful and suited for young children, is that everything can be stored inside product, so that children can take it with them wherever they go. Dessineo is suitable for children aged 4+.
