Check out Ayah's acceptance speech after winning the TOY OF THE YEAR last night at Toy Fair! "6 years ago we came to Toy Fair with a tiny booth made of cardboard. But we had a big mission: to empower kids to be creative with technology, no matter their gender, background and knowledge. So we developed the first platform of electronic building blocks that inspired kids to invent anything their imagination allowed. We are back 6 years later here to celebrate our partnership with Star Wars where we brought this vision to hundreds of thousands of kids around the world of which close to 40% are girls. They are making candy serving Droids and blinking Droids and prankster Droids. And we are just beginning. We want to thank the Disney Accelerator Team and Lucasfilm and the Disney Integrated Retail Team. We want to thank our partners Walmart and Amazon.com. Most of all, thank you to the littleBits team - I have never seen a team so passionate, so driven by our mission, so fearless and so intensely creative. Bitsters, this is for you"
