Clockwork Soldier Wins Gift of the Year, Children’s & Educational

The multi-award-winning Clockwork Soldier has once again won the Children’s and Educational category in the prestigious Gift of the Year Awards with its Make Your Own Dinosaur Timeline & World Map. At the core of Clockwork Soldier is a commitment to the environment, fun, nostalgia, and education. Clearly the awards judges recognised the brand’s commitment to innovation and the power of play.  

The Make Your Own Dinosaur Timeline & World Map invites you to take a giant step into the world of dinosaurs and learn all about these amazing creatures. You can explore the world map and see where your child’s favourite dinosaurs were discovered. What is particularly special about this product is that it is a totally interactive gift, complete with an activity sheet to play and learn all about the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. All this and a true environmental ethos – Clockwork Soldier is committed to reducing waste and removing plastics from their products and there is no messy glue or scissors needed here! 

Speaking of the awards, Clockwork Soldier founder, Rob Dakin said, “It is an honour to be a winner once again in the Gift of the Year Awards. We are now a multi award-winning brand, proud of the positive impact we have made on children’s lives for over 12 years. The Clockwork Soldier team are passionate about play – constantly striving to design holistic learning experiences across a huge range of topics including, nature, dinosaurs, theatre, the world, and space. The two products that made the finals really reflect our ethos as a company, and we are absolutely thrilled to have won in the Children’s, Educational & Pre-School category.”
