So the time has come to announce our Play Patrol agents.
When we first discussed the idea of Play Patrol in 2012 we could not have hoped for a greater reaction. We had over 100 bloggers register their interest on our Facebook page whereby over 50 completed the application form stage, letting us know why they would be great for Play Patrol. Even at this stage it was hard to whittle candidates down, but we managed it and got it down to a superb 12 potentials.
We set them all the same task of honestly assessing and reviewing our brand new Farm House Sorter – all of which were superbly written in a fun and engaging manner, showing the many possibilities that can be had with this wonderful wooden toy.
We deliberated for hours at Bigjigs HQ on who should progress to full Play Patrol Agents. It was difficult enough getting from 50 down to 12, so it was always going to be a big ask to whittle 12 down to 5… (un)fortunately we didn’t quite manage it. Instead, because of the quality of applications and the wonderful reviews, we have in fact decided that all 12 deserve the opportunity to be Play Patrol agents! So we would like to announce that ALL of the final 12 have made it through the rigorous screening process to make it to fully fledged Bigjigs Toys Play Patrol Agents!
- Sonya Cisco – The Ramblings of a Formerly Rock ‘N’ Roll Mum

It was never our intention to have this many Play Patrol Agents but we simply could not perform a cull after all the hard work and effort they all put in.
So the Play Patrol agents will receive their first official mission in a few weeks, so keep an eye for our wonderful little agents coming to a blog near you soon!
