Walmart named VTech Supplier of the Year in the toy category. The award was presented to the developer of electronic learning products at Walmart’s Supplier Growth Forum, held last month in Rogers, Arkansas.

The Supplier of the Year Awards are presented to the leading supplier in each major product category within Walmart. This is the first year that VTech received the Toy Supplier of the Year award.

VTech and Walmart are frequent partners for exclusive product launches, most recently with Catch Me Casey. The electronic monkey, which dances, skates, and introduces kids to letters, numbers, and shapes, made its debut as a Walmart exclusive last fall.

Andy Keimach, president, VTech Electronics North America, recently took part in the Toy Book‘s annual State of the Industry Q&A series.
