ZIPES™ SPEED PIPES PERFORMANCE PACK and LINKT™ CRAFT KITS BUBBLE LOOPS manufactured by Neat-Oh! International, LLC have been honored with 2017 Best Toys for Kids awards by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA). Since the Best Toys for Kids started in 2013 only a handful of companies have ever won two awards in the same year.
The Best Toys for Kids Award list features toys that stretch a child’s imagination and help kids unplug from electronic games to rediscover the true joy of play.
“ASTRA’s top picks are different. Instead of being financed by the companies that make the toys, ASTRA’s BEST TOYS FOR KIDS list is chosen by a community of people who care deeply about quality toys,” said Kimberly Mosley, 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.”
“Neat-Oh! International, LLC, 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 Mosley.
“We are thrilled to be a TWO-TIME winner on the 2017 Best Toys for Kids Award list” said Dee Farrell, Senior Vice President of Neat-Oh! “And after 12 years in the industry, I know just how meaningful this awards is. Our mission at Neat-Oh! is to make Playtime Even More Special for kids and their parents. We create toys that are safe, that are premium quality and that are designed with play in mind. Receiving two Best Toys For Kids Awards shows we’re right on track with our mission.”
According to Dee, the award is also recognition of Neat-Oh!’s support of local neighborhood toy stores. Neat-Oh! developed both Zipes™ Speed Pipes and Linkt™ Craft Kits with the plan to make them available…
