On the Right Track: Lionel's Mega Tracks Gains Recognition in the Toy Industry
In honor of Throwback Thursday, we’d like to feature the revolutionary Lionel Mega Tracks Corkscrew Chaos Master Set! This flexible track system was fully developed at our Attleboro, Mass location. From concept sketching, to design, straight through to 3D printing and prototype – the Empire Group worked with Lionel to develop their product and bring this exclusive idea to life.
The Mega Tracks have received some serious attention in the toy industry. In addition to being most recently recognized as a finalist in the Toy Industry Association 2017 Toy of the Year (TOTY) award, Mega Tracks has gained several other awards:
- Parents’ Choice Foundation – Parents’ Choice Approved
- National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA) – 2016 NAPPA winner
- The National Parenting Center - Seal of Approval winner
- The Toy Insider - Top Holiday Toys
- TTPM Most Wanted- 'Toy Vehicles' category
- FamilyFun - 2016 Toy of the Year Award winner
- Scholastic Parent & Child - 2016 Gold Star Toy
- Amazon Holiday Toy List - Tech Toys and Top 100
- Savvy Auntie Coolest Toy Award winner
It’s always a great feeling when you can assist your client in the success of a product. Empire Group truly had a blast working with Lionel on this endeavor, and we’re so happy for their accomplishments.
