The Orb Factory Wins Prestigious Best Toy Award
Halifax, Nova Scotia – PlushCraft® 3D Puppy, manufactured by The Orb Factory, has won a Best Toys For Kids Award in the Creative Arts Play category.
ASTRA’s Best Toys for Kids has been called the Oscars of the toy industry.
The Best Toys for Kids Award list features toys that stretch a child’s imagination, invite discovery and exploration, and helps kids build creativity.
“ASTRA’s top picks are different. Instead of being financed by the companies that make the toys, ASTRA’s list is chosen by a community of people who care deeply about quality toys,” said Kathleen McHugh, President of ASTRA. “Winners are selected by neighborhood toy store owners around the country who watch kids play in their store all day long and talk with parents about which toys sustain their child’s attention and become beloved additions to their toy box.”
“The Orb Factory, along with the others on the Best Toys for Kids Award list, go way beyond the pre-programmed, ho-hum play of so many heavily advertised toys and gives kids play that truly challenges their imagination, creativity, and other skills,” continued McHugh.
PlushCraft® 3D allows children to follow illustrated instructions and use the stylus to punch fabric pieces into a 3D mold. This patented play concept is easy-to-use, mess-free and results in a lovable Plushy Pal. PlushCraft® 3D was born out of the popular fabric-by-number PlushCraft® line, originally launched in 2012.
