Innovation

Spin Master is innovative. Across six research and development (R&D) centres, it has a deep internal talent pool that comes up with new ideas. It also has about 200-300 third-party inventors who complement its internal R&D. This results in thousands of ideas being filtered down to 30-50 that will be commercialized every year.

It’s no wonder that, since 2000, Spin Master has received 103 Toy of The Year (TOTY) nominations with 30 wins across a range of product categories, including 13 TOTY nominations for Innovative Toy of the Year.

Spin Master’s latest novelty, which was launched in early October, is Owleez™, the first ever interactive toy pet that kids can teach how to fly. This new toy, along with five others from Spin Master, are on Walmart’s (NYSE:WMT) Top Rated By Kids list.
