Victoria, BC - Creative Child magazine's Top Creative Toy Awards panel has once again honored games from Outset Media. Pick Two Deluxe and Rhyme Thyme were both tapped by the panel for their creative play value.

Pick Two Deluxe won the Preferred Choice Award, while Rhyme Thyme received the Seal of Excellence Award.

"We are delighted that the awards panel has acknowledged our games again this year. We try to make all our games fun, creative and educational," said David Manga, president of Outset Media.

Pick Two Deluxe is the always-changing, always-rearranging crossword game where everyone plays at the same time. It has won several other awards, including a Parents' Choice Foundation Silver Honor Award, a National Parenting Center Seal of Approval Award and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award.

Rhyme Thyme is a simple matching game for young children. Players must be quick to catch the match in order to win cards. Rhyme Thyme helps children build hand-eye coordination, word recognition and reaching vocabulary.

Creative Child is a bi-monthly national publication that provides parents with the latest information on how to nurture their child's creativity. Creative Child has previously bestowed Top Creative Toy Awards on Outset Media's Artifact, All American Trivia Junior, Conjecture, Telepaths and its Professor Noggin's card game series.

News of the awards will be published in the November 2006 holiday issue of Creative Child magazine. The games will also be listed in a special section on the Creative Child website at www.creativechildonline.
