Adorable plush toy, "Patron Dog," inspired by the famous Chernihiv sapper dog and based on a beloved comic book, has clinched the Silver award in the Soft Toys category at the prestigious Independent Toy Awards in the United Kingdom.

The "Patron Dog" Collection: A Soft and Cuddly Triumph

The "Patron Dog" collection, brought to life by Ukrainian manufacturer WP Merchandise, was unveiled at the end of 2022, and it's been capturing hearts ever since. This delightful collection includes a soft decorative pillow featuring the lovable dog's face, a roomy felt bag, and, of course, the star of the show, a plush toy named "Patron Dog." Crafted from soft hypoallergenic fabric, Patron is not just any plush pup. He comes dressed in a combat vest adorned with embroidered patches on Velcro, allowing for easy customization and play. Each plush Patron even comes complete with its very own collar, complete with a medallion. Measuring at a huggable 28 centimeters, Patron is the perfect companion for young and old alike.

Awards by the People, for the People

What sets the Independent Toy Awards apart from the rest is its unique method of selecting the best toys. Rather than relying on industry experts, the awards are decided by national independent toy retailers—those who truly understand the market and what appeals to consumers. This makes the Independent Toy Awards a highly valuable and authoritative recognition in the toy industry. Past winners have included renowned toy brands like LOL, Bee Smart Toys, SES Creative, and Monopoly, making Patron Dog's Silver award all the more prestigious.
