Clifton, NJ (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
The Parents’ Choice Awards Program has announced that three American Girl Crafts products have won the coveted “Classic, Fun Stuff™” awards for Spring 2012 Toys. The winners are the Sweet Heart Embroidered Pillow, the Paper Flower Wreath and the Painted Memory Box.
The Parents’ Choice Foundation is the nation’s oldest nonprofit guide to quality children’s media and toys. The foundation’s purpose is to search out and recommend products that help kids grow—imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally. The Parents’ Choice Awards committee additionally looks for products that help parents and kids to connect.
The American Girl Crafts line, designed for girls ages 8 to 12, includes kits inspired by the popular historical characters from American Girl®. Each craft distinctly reflects the character’s spirit and the stories from American Girl’s award-winning books. The high-quality kits pass on traditions such as embroidery, paper crafts and wood painting, while appealing to girls of today with contemporary colors and styling. The Sweet Heart Stitched Pillow is inspired by Felicity®, 1774; the Fancy Flower Wreath by Marie-Grace® and Cecile®, 1853; and the Painted Memory Box by Josefina®, 1824. Easy-to-follow, illustrated instructions are also included to help girls learn the new skills with confidence.
Introduced in 1986, American Girl’s historical characters give girls an understanding of American history and foster pride in growing up as a girl in America. The flagship historical line, featuring premium-quality books, dolls, clothes, and accessories, has earned the loyalty of millions of girls and the praise and trust of parents and educators.
