Toy testing is childs play for Hertfordshires Finlay Wakefield who became one of the faces of Galt Toys after winning a national competition.

One-year-old Finlay, from Stevenage, saw off strong competition to secure his place as Baby Galt in the Search for Face of Galt competition after impressing the Galt judges with his YouTube entry.

The Galt Toys competition gave four children the chance to star on its website, test its toys and win 250 worth of Galt toys for the family. Galt searched for four children to make up its very own Galt Team -Professor Galt,Leonardo DiGaltci,Princess Galt and Baby Galt.

Finley was entered into the competition by his mother, Susannah Wakefield, who comments, My husband Marc and I were so excited when we received the news that our gorgeous boy Finley had won and can't wait to see him representing Galt.

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. The wonderful array of entries, judged by the Galt toy developers, made judging the all the entries their best task of the year.
