23 October 2015

It's that time of year again when the respected Today's Parent magazine releases its ultimate Toy Guide just in time for Christmas and the holiday season! Once again they did their homework by bringing hundreds of products to tiny testers and their families to get the real deal feedback on which toys are the most engaging.

Outset Media has the honour of being included in three categories with four products!  

In the babies and toddlers section, you'll find Patch's Mirari Flip Flop ABC BlocksFlip Flop ABC Blocks bring classic letter blocks to life, offering a magical experience for toddlers while they become familiar with the alphabet! Each block represents a letter with a letter sticker on the back, and inside each clear 2" block is a suspended letter or character that begins with that letter!  Hidden magnets allow them to interact, jiggling and wiggling as they come to life! Use the magical wand to wave over the blocks and watch them move! Appropriate for age 12+ months.

For the preschool section, you'll find MindWare's Geo PlayThis building set is fun from every angle! It's a brilliant system of notched circles, triangles, squares, and half octagons that are specially engineered to lock sturdily when you slide them together. The geometric construction options are endless! Available in two color options, Confetti and Arcade. Appropriate for age 3+.

Two products made the Big Kids list!  Spa Soaps from SmartLab Toys brings science to soap making. Use a microwave oven and the super-cute molds, soap base, and pigments in the set to make seashell or flower shaped soaps. Get creative by adding all-natural ingredients found in the kitchen and in the garden! Add rose petals or lavender to create scented soaps, oatmeal to make soothing soaps, and much more! Add honey and make a beehive-shaped soap! Follow the recipes in the booklet or dream up custom soaps. Make soap for friends and fold up five whimsical, pre-printed boxes to give as gifts. The possibilities are endless with this spa-tacular kit. Appropriate for age 8+.

And Pickles to Penguins from Outset Media is the party game for every party!  You have to think fast to win at Pickles to Penguins. This loud and goofy party game asks you to make-up the connections between items to be the first to get rid of your cards. Can you find a link between pickles and penguins? Bees and balloons?
