Spielwarenmesse honours six innovative new products with ToyAward

Published

on

 

For six exhibitors, it is an especially successful start to the 72nd Spielwarenmesse. One day before the official opening of the fair, they were celebrated at the PressPreview for their outstanding product innovations with the presentation of the coveted ToyAward. In the Baby & Infant area, it was the EverEarth 7 in 1 Space Activity Cube from EverEarth Europe that won the day. First place in PreSchool went to the Yummy Bear Scale from Topbright. Clementoni won the prize in the SchoolKids section with the History of Life on Earth experimentation set. In the Teenager & Adults category, victory went to the Miika K.I. robot from Franckh-Kosmos. HoloToyz took the award in the Startup area for its Paw Patrol AR Tattoos & Stickers, while BAVVIC was the winner in the Sustainability section with its Creative Building Blocks.

As an important quality seal, the ToyAward enjoys worldwide recognition. The prizewinning new products were selected by a 13-member international expert jury. They were rated in terms of comprehensibility of the product concept, play enjoyment, originality, safety, potential for commercial success, and production & quality. “The award-winning products thus represent important pointers for the purposes of range selection,” emphasises Christian Ulrich, Spokesperson of the Executive Board at Spielwarenmesse eG. All prizewinners and the nominees can be viewed at the dedicated ToyAward Special Area in Hall 3A. Overview of the winners:

 

Category: Baby & Infant (0-3 years)
EverEarth 7 in 1 Space Activity Cube, EverEarth Europe
Hours of fun for babies and toddlers are promised by the 7-in-1 Space Activity Cube from EverEarth. There is plenty to discover in this varied activity cube with its rotating and plug-in games and space station with planets, vehicles and an alien figure. It provides training for fine motor skills, concentration and thinking skills. “The design of the Cube really catches the eye – it needs no technology and yet it’s smart,” commented jury members.

Category: PreSchool (3-6 years)
Yummy Bear Scale, Topbright
With the Yummy Bear Scale from Topbright, preschoolers learn their first numbers and the physical concepts of weight and balance. If they place a number of colourful cupcakes on the scales, only the corresponding sum of the numbers balances the weight. In addition, simple maths problems can be solved by balancing the numbers. “What’s impressive about this educationally valuable toy is the intuitive learning and child-appropriate re-working of a well-known principle,” was the jury’s verdict.

Category: SchoolKids (6-10 years)
History of Life on Earth, Clementoni
The History of Life on Earth experiment set from Clementoni reveals millions of years of human history to young scientists. Their own experiments are supplemented with digital content via a smartphone app and information is vividly illustrated by VR elements. Disciplines such as geology, palaeontology, astronomy and botany are taught. “The range of experiments and the entertainment that the kit provides are particularly worth mentioning,” the jury noted.

Category: Teenager & Adults (10 years and older)
Miika K.I., Franckh-Kosmos
Franckh-Kosmos sets a milestone with Miika K.I. Young hobby developers can train the adaptive robot in speech, sounds and gestures. Miika K.I. learns to execute simple commands via an app. Detailed instructions provide background knowledge on artificial intelligence. The expert jury’s summary: “The consistent nature of the concept, its integration into a comic and the ability to specify your own gestures deserve a great deal of praise.”

Category: Startup
Paw Patrol AR Tattoos & Stickers, HoloToyz
The Paw Patrol Augmented Reality Tattoos & Stickers from HoloToyz make dreams come true. Scanned with an app, the cute dog cops Chase, Zuma & Co come to life as 3D animations. Whether as stickers in the room or as tattoos on the skin: in no time at all, the lively characters are whizzing through the children’s room. “Remarkably innovative,” in the jury’s view; they also highlighted the thoughtful introduction to new technologies and the straightforward operation of the app.

Category: Sustainability
Creative Building Blocks, BAVVIC
The wooden Creative Building Blocks from BAVVIC can be assembled into countless constructions with the help of easy-to-grip silicone connections. As a STEM learning toy, they stimulate interest in technical interrelationships, and their integrative approach makes them particularly suitable for children with sensory integration disorders. The wood for the blocks comes from offcuts from window frame and furniture production. “The tactile feel of the building blocks stands out,” in the assessment of jury members.

BRUSSELS, Dec. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo has travelled to Houston, United States, to meet Raphaël Liégeois, the Belgian career astronaut selected as part of the European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut class of 2022. De Croo’s visit coincides with the ESA cohort’s familiarisation trip to NASA’s Johnson Space Centre, which is the precursor to a further two years of training, delivered in Houston, to prepare the astronauts for their respective missions on the International Space Station. The visit signals a new phase of the long-standing collaboration between Europe and the United States on space research and exemplifies Belgium’s commitment to partnerships in facing global challenges.

Belgium’s expertise in aerospace, and in science more generally, is internationally recognised – in terms of both training and industry. Belgium is a founding member of the ESA and its fifth-largest funder. The country’s support of the ESA shows its commitment to shaping the development of Europe’s space capability and ensuring that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
“For Belgians, the sky isn’t the limit, the universe is,” said De Croo. “Today, we are very proud to see Raphaël take this important step in his career as an astronaut. He will be an important role model for many generations of STEM students to come. Space research and innovation hold particular importance for Belgium; they are powerful economic drivers which foster the growth of high-tech industries and create jobs – as evidenced by the number of Belgian companies on the cutting edge of aeronautics.” 
The 17 members of the ESA astronaut class of 2022 were selected from a pool of over 23,000 applicants. The process, designed to bring together the finest scientific minds that Europe has to offer, took place over a period lasting 18 months.
The selection of Raphaël Liégeois is testament to Belgium’s focus on embracing openness, driven by innovation, partnerships, and diversity, to create solutions that drive progress for all.

Savory & Partners: Digital Nomad Visas Sparking a Migration Boom

Published

on

savory-&-partners:-digital-nomad-visas-sparking-a-migration-boom

DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The simplicity and lax requirements of digital nomad visas have made them easily accessible, and countries like Portugal and Spain, which have excellent infrastructure, great internet connection, and an outstanding standard of living, draw in more digital nomads by the day, according to experts at Dubai-headquartered citizenship and residency by investment advisors Savory and Partners.

A recent research quoted by the company estimates that there are 16.9 million digital nomads roaming the globe. This is a whopping 162% increase from 2019, just four years earlier.
As soon as Portugal introduced its digital nomad visa in October of 2022, the applications started pouring in. While the government hasn’t announced the number of applications it has received, Portugal’s Labour Minister did announce that the country approved 550 applications within the first six months.
Two months after launching its visa in September of 2021, Greece received 2,918 applications, approving an astonishing 1,693 applicants. The government is yet to release any new statistics, but going off that outstanding start it is safe to assume it is still garnering massive attention.
Germany also boasts impressive numbers, having issued a total of 3,638 visas in just one year since the introduction of its visa in 2018.
According to Residency Malta, the government branch responsible for the digital nomad visa, it has issued 1,041 visas to date, with an average approval rate of 78%.
Croatia, one of the first countries to introduce a pure digital nomad visa in early 2021 as a response to the rise in remote workers, has approved 680 applications, while 672 are still pending approval.
Not just Europe
“It’s not just Europe but even Barbados’ digital nomad visa, dubbed the Welcome Stamp, has been doing outstandingly well, receiving a total of 3,511 applications between 2020 and 2022”, a digital nomad specialist at Savory & Partners reports.
While digital nomads typically use visa-free access or visas to stay in countries for a few months at a time before moving on to the next, digital nomad visas provide a sense of comfort and stability that aligns perfectly with their lifestyle, giving them ample time to enjoy the country they are in before moving on to the next.
Unsurprising demand
The rapid growth in application numbers and the surging demand for digital nomad visas isn’t surprising. They are extremely simple to apply to, have fast processing times ranging from a few days to a couple of months, and they do not require any business establishment or investment.
Portugal’s digital nomad visa, for example, only requires applicants to prove a monthly income of €3,040 per month, while Spain’s visa has a lower threshold of just €2,160 per month.
Savory & Partners is an accredited agent for multiple governments where citizenship by investment is offered. The company has coverage in over 20 jurisdictions, including Europe and was the first firm to obtain all five authorised agent licenses for the governments of the Caribbean Islands. It has processed second passports for over 4,000 citizens with a 100 per cent success rate.
With a presence in 3 continents and 7 countries and more than 60 experts worldwide, the company’s multinational staff comprises advisors who guide clients in English, Arabic, Farsi, French, Spanish and Hindi.
