Young toy testers, aged two to 13, rated toys and gizmos at workshops staged by the Eastgate Shopping Centre.

A remote-controlled wall climbing car was second while Boppi The Booty Shakin’ Llama was third.

The winner of a toy testers’ prize draw for a £50 gift voucher was Scarlett Stewart (2), of Milton of Leys, who visited the centre with her sister Amelia.
