We are delighted and proud to announce that we have been chosen as winners of the 2017 Tillywig Toy and Media Award.

Rainbow Pebbles wins the Top Fun Award


Rainbow Pebbles is a construction toy and early mathematics manipulative that powerfully inspires children to build and investigate. Kids react to the sight of them as if they’ve stumbled upon treasure, which, from a play and learning standpoint, they have. Shape-wise, Rainbow Pebbles strongly resemble natural pebbles and stones one might find along the seashore. But their vivid colors and stunningly smooth surfaces convey that these pebbles were made for playing. The first thing youngsters do is gleefully run their hands over them, hefting them, delighting in the tactile experience. Then the investigations begin – sorting, counting, stacking, arranging, building. 20 included activity cards display a wide variety of critters and objects that can be constructed, a leap-off point for the infinite and highly imaginative possibilities Rainbow Pebbles put at kids’ fingertips. Includes 36 pebbles in 6 colors and 6 sizes.

Junior GeoStix wins the Best Creative Fun Award


This unique and versatile construction toy opens the door to a remarkable level of creative play. Junior GeoStix’s straight and curved flexible sticks snap together so easily and in so many configurations (including items with moving parts) that children don’t hesitate to jump right in and start building. For those who enjoy the challenge of recreating what they see, the set comes with 30 two-sided activity cards that display dozens of GeoStix-made objects, people and creatures to replicate. With such inspiration at kids’ fingertips, ideas flow easily and all sorts of wildly imaginative structures spontaneously spring forth. In addition to the activity cards, Junior GeoStix includes 200 colorful, flexible plastic sticks (including new 1/4 circle and 1/2 circle pieces) in 10 different sizes ranging from 2.5cm to 15cm. The plastic reusable tub in which this all comes packaged makes cleanup quick and easy. Promotes creative thinking, problem-solving and fine motor skill development.

Skeletal Starter Geo Set wins the Brain Child Award


This construction set is an ideal way for kids to explore basic geometric shapes as well as more complex and beautiful structures. The clever design of the building components makes them versatile and easy to use, qualities that inspire creativity and exploration. Pieces consist of colorful balls with holes into which the ends of the set’s brightly colored plastic sticks can be pressed to create a snug fit. Each ball thus acts as an interconnecting hub in forming two- and three-dimensional structures. Some youngsters begin by constructing objects of their own imagining. Others reconstruct some or all of the many models illustrated on the set’s activity cards. The benefits include fine motor skill development, creativity, color and length recognition, exploration of angles, and enhanced problem solving skills. Skeletal Starter Geo Set includes 80 sticks in 4 sizes and colors, 40 connecting balls in two colors, 24 quarter circles, and twenty 2-sided activity cards, all packaged in one sturdy, reusable storage container.
