Reasons for the Award of
Toy of the Year 2005 for Left-Handed Children
for the card game SOLO
to the Firm Spiel + Freizeit GmbH
All the playing cards of the game SOLO are designed so that left-handers as well as right-handers can see the symbols in the corners without any problems. Even today, there are producers who do not give much thought to the problems of left-handers. We are particularly pleased that the firm Amigo has taken the needs of left-handers into account in its complete product range. We would like to honour this consistent, innovative and well thought-out approach.
These are the reasons why we are making the award to the firm for the card game SOLO of
Toy of the Year 2005 for Left-Handed Children andedH
As left-handers take and play cards with the left hand and hold them in the right hand, it is particularly important that they can see the small corner symbols on both the right and left-hand sides. Only in this way is it possible for left-handers to see what the cards are at first glance and to take part at the same tempo as other players.
Description of Solo – one of the most popular games in the world!
The way the game goes would be quite simple, were it not for some built in hazards: "new action" cards, which always provide surprises. Whether someone has to prolong the game or abandon it, whether the game direction is changed, or the cards serve as Jokers - for entertainment everything is provided with Solo, the exciting variation on the game Mau-Mau.
