Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
Named one of the hottest toys at the recent 2010 International Toy Fair in New York City by Toytips.com, Kingka (http://www.kingkagames.com), the award winning brain teaser game that teaches players 54 basic Chinese characters and over 1000 words, will be part of Distinctive Assets Mother’s Day Celebrity Gift Boxes this year, going to 25 top celebrity moms including Amy Poehler, Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kourtney Kardashian and more.
With China’s growing economy and increasing global influence, Mandarin Chinese has become the new must-learn language according to this recent story in the New York Times - http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/21/education/21chinese.html. An increasing number of global-minded parents worldwide are encouraging their children to learn Chinese as a second language. Created by a Chinese-American entrepreneur, mom, children’s book author, and educator, Sholeen Lou-Hsiao invented the uniquely designed Kingka game that guarantees players of all ages will acquire knowledge of Chinese characters.
Sholeen notes “Kingka is the best way to introduce Mandarin Chinese to children in a casual setting. With all the new celebrity parents wanting the best for their children, what could be better than the gift of learning the fastest growing global language, Mandarin.”
Recently the game was a huge hit at the Connected Oscar gift room where Kingka was picked up by Oscar winning parent "Up" director Peter Docter, Oscar nominated parent "In the Loop" writer/director Armando Iannucci, celebrity parents Willie Garson, Scott Baio, Keith David and Christopher Rich, along with young actors including Kevin McHale, Ariel Winter, Romi Dames, Allisyn Arm, Greg Sulkin, Brittney Curran and more.
