Over 500 of America's top independent and neighborhood toy retailers meet at ASTRA’s annual convention to hand-pick the most engaging, unique, open-ended, fun, and safe toys for children.
- The Creative Child Magazine: 2011 Game of the Year Award was given to PlaSmart’s Perplexus Rookie™ and Perplexus Epic™.

“This is a great start to the year,” said Timothy Kimber, President, PlaSmart Inc. “PlaSmart’s mission is to deliver ground-breaking and fun products that bring families together.

Perplexus Original™ launched in 2010 as the world’s first 3D maze game and won its rightful place among the top smart toys awarded by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA), the Canadian Toy Testing Council (CTTC), The Toy Insider, NAPPA, Times and Parents Magazines. It challenges players with multiple paths and 100 barriers to manoeuvre through in a 3-dimensional maze that will enthral every player. The new Perplexus Epic™ adds to the excitement with 125 barriers to overcome. The new Perplexus Rookie™, which is for younger or less experienced maze experts, is still an incredible challenge with multiple paths and 70 barriers to conquer.
