Toy testing is child’s play for little Dexter Hughes of Cleckheaton, who has become the face of Galt Toys.
Two-year-old Dexter saw off strong competition to secure his place as Professor Galt in the Search for the national Face of Galt competition after impressing the Galt judges with his YouTube entry.
The company wanted four children to make up its very own Galt Team – Professor Galt, Leonardo DiGaltci, Princess Galt and Baby Galt – and the lucky winners will star on its website, test its toys and receive £250 worth of toys.
Dexter was entered into the competition by his mother, Lisa Hughes, who said: “Dexter’s personality is almost as big as his hair, so we thought he would be perfect as the Face of Galt!
“We are thrilled that he has won, and he can’t wait to test out his new toys.”
The Face of Galt competition, which ran for five months, invited parents to upload a video to a dedicated YouTube channel showing their little star dancing, singing or telling a silly joke or funny fact.
John McDonnell, managing director of James Galt Limited, said: “We were delighted with the response from parents to the Search for the Face of Galt competition and have been impressed with all the entries we received, which made the judging very difficult.
“The four finalists we’ve chosen really do bring something special and unique to the Galt Toys brand as we all know who the real toy experts are – children!”
