With so many toys on offer, from well-known names like Paw Patrol and Thomas & Friends, through to the vast array of board games and playsets available, parents are faced with a difficult choice, awards can help navigate their decision.

Heather Welch, International Brand Manager at Edx Education, says:

“We are excited to win this prestigious Good Housekeeping Toy Award in the US and hope to inspire children to play, learn and create together with our ever-growing educational toy ranges. Children have curious minds; they love to explore and experiment and what better way to do that than through play”.

So what are FunPlay Pebbles?

FunPlay Rainbow Pebbles help children’s key developmental skills in the early years, from fine to gross motor skills, cognitive development, communication, literacy and language, while also encouraging creative play, problem-solving, critical thinking and so much more.

The no-slip “pebbles” let pre-schoolers make stacks by size and shape, sort by colour and try to complete the challenges on activity cards, introducing them to early math concepts.

The FunPlay Rainbow Pebbles set is part of the wider FunPlay home learning range developed by Edx Education.

The FunPlay collection has been specially designed for children aged 18 months to 6 years, to support and develop early mathematical and scientific concepts in a fun and engaging way. This method has proven to be highly effective in the early years.

“Not only was I pleasantly surprised by just how much we loved the Rainbow Pebbles but I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to introduce loose parts into their play or anyone looking to offer opportunity for early maths and construction through play” LOVE EARLY EDUCATION

The range helps curious minds discover and explore ideas that will challenge their logical thinking and creative imagination.
