In breaking news, Springfree™ Trampoline has been awarded with the 2010 Children’s Product of the Year Award USA.
Hosted in 28 countries, Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted program that recognizes innovation in consumer packaged goods.
In its second year, over 60,000 American shoppers voted on products in a survey conducted by TNS. Springfree™ Trampoline was just crowned as the Product of the Year in its category at the Awards Ceremony hosted by Phil Lemper in New York City.
Springfree™ Trampoline is the only trampoline design that has effectively removed the risk of product induced injury. With over 200,000 kids injured worldwide each year on spring-based trampoline designs, for every 15 Springfree™ Trampoline’s sold, one child is kept out of hospital.
Springfree™ Trampoline’s Global Marketing Director, Kristen Hill accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“On the tail-end of such a highly sought-after and recognized award, Springfree™ Trampoline could not be launching into the North American Market any better.”
“This Award reflects Springfree™ Trampoline’s commitment to safety and innovation and the independent voting process is a testament to parents’ belief in choosing the safest products for their children.”
“We are honored to be receiving this international success but also thrilled that consumers recognize and appreciate the innovatation that is Springfree™ Trampoline,” Hill Says.
Just last week, Springfree™ Trampoline was named 2010 Canadian Product of the Year – Around the Home category and was also recognized as the judges’ number one choice on top of the category crown.
About Product of the Year
Product of the Year is the only consumer product award that rewards innovation and is voted on by real consumers. Established 22 years ago in France, POY currently operates in 28 countries with the same purpose: Guide consumers to the best products in their market and reward manufacturers for quality and innovation. Backed by the votes of 60,000 consumers, the distinct red POY logo serves as shortcut for shoppers in the supermarket, saving them time and money. For manufacturers of the winning products, the award is a powerful marketing message proven to increase retail distribution and sales by an average of 10-15%. Product of the Year accepts entries every year from consumer packaged goods that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous year. Entered products are then placed into specific categories such as food, beverages, personal care, household care, etc. with a product then being chosen as a winner in its category through a nationally representative online study.
