The fischertechnik "Green Energy" construction kit is the category winner in the "Play and Technology" category of the German Toy Award 2021. fischertechnik was already strongly represented in the nomination phase for the award: Of eight nominated products, three alone came from the toy manufacturer "Made in Germany".
With the fischertechnik "Green Energy" construction kit, children and young people learn about renewable energies in a playful way. In this way, they are sensitised to questions of climate and environmental protection at a young age and discover forms of energy for the future. The concept of the construction kit also convinced the jury of the German Toy Award: "The assembly itself usually generates as much play fun as the subsequent play with the finished models. What's more, fischertechnik perfectly captures the pulse of the times with its Green Energy theme." This was the reasoning behind the choice for the category win.
As of this year, the German Toy Award replaces the renowned award "The Golden Rocking Horse". The prize was initiated by the family magazine "familie&co" and is the only award for toys in the German-speaking world that is voted for by consumers. fischertechnik has already been chosen as a prize winner several times in the past.
