Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
PERPLEXUS was nominated as one of the finalists in the Game Play under 8 yrs+ category of ASTRA’s Best Toys For Kids. Being a finalist, PlaSmart Inc. is invited to display PERPLEXUS at a special station at the 2010 ASTRA Marketplace & Academy show for all retail members to see, feel and touch before they make their final selections by vote.
Winning products will have a unique opportunity to take part in ASTRA’s ongoing public relations strategy to promote a holiday list of toys to parents that reflects the quality and values of their local neighborhood toy store.
The final ballot will go to all ASTRA retail members on June 4th and will continue through Marketplace until June 18th. Online voting will also be available for retail members only.
PERPLEXUS was first introduced by PlaSmart Inc. at the 2009 Fall Toy Preview in Dallas. Since then, PERPLEXUS had been accepted across the world as “The biggest time waster since the internet.” PERPLEXUS is a bendy, trendy, can’t put-it-down challenge!!! With plenty of twists, turns and barriers between start and finish, it will leave you perplexed. Watch out… once you try it you will be hooked!
PERPLEXUS is an enclosed transparent sphere that was invented by 3D design teacher Michael McGinnis in the late 1970’s and was originally named and marketed as SuPerplexus. PERPLEXUS provides hours of fun and frustration as you twist and turn the sphere trying to maneuver the small steel ball through and intricate labyrinth of narrow plastic tracks in order to reach the end.
