We are so honored that BOTH Laser Maze and Zingo! Sight Words have been named Best Toys for Kids by ASTRA, the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association!
The Best Toys for Kids program was created by ASTRA to help its retailer members attract media coverage and customers to their stores during the fourth quarter. This year, winners were voted for by more than 550 independent and neighborhood toy retailers, and announced on June 19, the final day of the 2013 Marketplace & Academy in Nashville, TN.
"ASTRA retailers are America's play experts," said Kathleen McHugh, president, ASTRA, in a statement. "They know toys inside out and they watch children play with them every day in their stores. Our Best Toys for Kids award program represents their collective expertise. Moms and dads and grandparents and other toy buyers cannot get this level of objective knowledge about toys and play in any other top toy list. It represents the fun, top-quality products with high play value that consumers can find in locally-owned neighborhood toy stores around the country."
