Hasbro’s Tanya Thompson wins I.D.I.O.T. Award at UK Toy Inventors’ Dinner
Hasbro’s Tanya Thompson was awarded the prestigious I.D.I.O.T. Award at last week’s UK Toy Inventors Dinner, hosted at The Gherkin in London.
I.D.I.O.T. stands for International Designer and Inventor of Toys and the award – initiated in 1988 – is given as a tribute to those who have made outstanding contributions to the toy industry.
Previous winners of the award in recent years includes NPD’s Max Ford, People of Play’s Mary Couzin, Goliath’s Adi Golad and Spin Master’s Ben Dermer.
“I can’t believe it,” said Tanya, adding: “The recipients of this award are people I admire in the industry and the people I do not know I’ve heard of in storybook song and legend. It’s such an honour.”
