Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
PlaSmart Inc., a global distributor of toys that bring families together through fun, was honoured today by having three of its new fall toys named top toys of the year by two of the most prestigious top toy awards - Disney’s FamilyFun Magazine Top Toys of the Year and The Toy Insider Magazine’s Hot 20 toys.
Disney’s FamilyFun Magazine named Perplexus Rookie™ and Perplexus Epic™ the Third Top Toys of the Year. The challenging 3D marble maze games stood out as top picks for this holiday season from a selection of more than 300 toys which were evaluated by a panel of FamilyFun family toy testers. The Disney FamilyFun Toy of the Year Awards is considered one of the most influential in the industry. For 20 years FamilyFun has published a list of top toys in its November issue that are widely perceived as determining which toys will be the best-sellers of the holiday season.
PlaSmart’s newest brand, the PlasmaBike, a two-wheeled balance bike with a unique wide-wheel shape that encourages balance development, was named one of the Hot 20 Toys by The Toy Insider Magazine. In its sixth year of publication, the Toy Insider features expert toy and gift recommendations at all price points which are selected by a panel of toy trend experts led by industry veterans Jonathan Samet, Publisher of The Toy Book, and Laurie Schacht, TOY INSIDER MOM and Contributing Toy Editor to Woman’s Day.
These two highly prestigious awards are the latest top toy awards for PlaSmart this year which has seen the company win more than 10 top toy awards in the past few months.
“We are thrilled at the enthusiastic response Perplexus Epic, Rookie and PlasmaBike have received from retailers, the media and consumers alike.” says Timothy Kimber, President, PlaSmart Inc. “PlaSmart’s mission is to bring families closer together through fun and these three products are a perfect example of how great products can do that.”
Perplexus from PlaSmart Inc. is the world’s first 3-dimensional marble maze game. Players manoeuvre a small marble around challenging barriers inside a large-sized transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus challenges players like no maze has before with numerous paths to choose from and dozens of barriers to overcome offering hours of entertainment and fun. In addition to being an entertaining game, Perplexus is a great tool for cognitive development, encouraging children to exercise their problem-solving, motor and dexterity skills, as well as improving their hand-eye coordination.

The PlasmaBike is a two-wheeled, no-pedal balance bike with a unique wide wheel shape that encourages balance development and helps avoid the need for training wheels when learning to ride a pedaled two-wheeled bicycle. The PlasmaBike’s unique shape provides children a fun, more stable ride than traditional standard-wheel sized balance bikes and helps to avoid many of the falls, bumps and scrapes their parents experienced when learning to ride a bike
