Smart Ball Counter Ball for the Win!

Get In! The Smart Ball Counter Ball has won in the ‘Sport & Splash Fun’ category at the 2023 Outdoor Toy Awards!

There were 10 award categories up for grabs, which were judged with the help of a large group of children aged 3-16 years. With more than 70 toys to test, they definitely had a fun afternoon playing in the sun!

Nick Gibbs-McNeil, Co-Organiser, added: “It was a logistical challenge – there’s just so many great toys available this year. It would be impossible to pick the winning toys without the guidance of our young helpers. A massive thanks to all of the brands we’ve worked with, which are so supportive of what we’re doing.”

Alice Murray, Marketing Manager at Golden Bear Toys said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been such a big part of this really fun day and to have the opportunity to go up against over 70 different toys – and we are of course ecstatic to have won! Thank you to the organisers and the children for giving us this chance and awarding our Smart Ball Counter Ball as the winner of the ‘Sport & Splash Fun’ category.

What is the Smart Ball Counter Ball?

Introducing the latest innovation in football, Smart Ball Counter Ball allows you to challenge yourself and your friends to see who can achieve more tricks!

With the capability of training your whole body, Counter Ball encourages you to use your feet, legs, knees, chest, and shoulders to keep the ball from hitting the ground.

As you reach key milestones, Counter Ball will count along with your kick ups, speak words of encouragement to spur you on as you challenge yourself to keep the ball in the air, and will light up each time it comes into contact with your body.

Expanding the Smart Ball range

The Golden Bear team are excited to be working on other innovative products for the Smart Ball brand which are set to launch this year. These new products aim to elevate your game, put your football skills to the test and will be the perfect indoor and outdoor toy range for football fanatics this year.
