Share Article

American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) members name Fuzzeez™ Husky to the 2016 ‘Best Toys for Kids Award’ list.

Fuzeez™Husky, manufactured by The Orb Factory, has been honored with a 2016 Best Toys for Kids award by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA)

The Best Toys for Kids Award list features toys that stretch a child’s imagination, toys that invite discovery and exploration, toys that get little ones moving, toys that help kids build creativity, and allow children to rediscover the joy of play.

“ASTRA’s top picks are different. Instead of being financed by the companies that make the toys, ASTRA’s list is chosen by a community of people who care deeply about quality toys,” said Kimberly Mosley, President of ASTRA. “Winners are selected by neighborhood toy store owners around the country who watch kids play in their store all day long and talk with parents about which toys sustain their child’s attention and become beloved additions to their toy box.”

Fuzzeez™ made its premiere just this year at New York Toy Fair. This craft kit lets children magically transform raw wool into a stuffy fluffy pal. Inspired by felting, Fuzzeez™spins this classic craft concept into something innovative, contemporary and completely awe inspiring.
