We’ve got Fun Stuff!

The Orb Factory wins two Parents’ Choice Awards

Two brand new products from The Orb Factory’s Spring line have been singled out by the Parents’ Choice Foundation.  Both PlushCraft™ Butterfly Pillow and Stick’n Style® Cupcake Clutch are Parents’ Choice Classic, Fun Stuff Award Winners.  The Parents’ Choice Foundation, a nonprofit guide to quality children’t media and toys established in 1978, recommends products that help kids grow imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally.

Here is what the Parents’ Choice Foundation had to say about our winning products:

The Stick’n Style Cupcake Clutch is a fun art project in which the child places beautiful self adhesive jewels on a small clutch purse shaped like a cupcake. Similar to paint by numbers projects, this “mosaic by numbers” project comes with a legend in which each colorful jewel is associated with a number. Numbers on the purse indicate where each jewel should go. This project is both educational and fun. It works on fine motor skills, problem solving, and sustained attention. In addition, the purse is a well made and can be used long after the project is complete. Recommended for children who love arts and crafts projects.

The PlushCraft Butterfly Pillow is a fun “fabric by number” arts and craft project in which the child decorates a butterfly shaped pillow with fabric pieces and jewels. Following a legend, the child uses a plastic stylus to punch different colored fabric pieces into the pillow. Once the fabric is in place, there are flowers and jewels that can also be snapped into place for decoration. The end result is a beautiful pillow. Younger kids may need help following the legend, but the pillow has pre-punched holes making it easy for even young kids to push the fabric into the appropriate holes. Children ages 7+ could complete the project with minimal adult supervision.
