San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2009 -
MagnaPlay LLC, an innovator of creative educational activities for children, announced today that it has received four Awards from the notable Creative Child Awards program. The MagnaKase Magnetic Dry Erase Activity Case has received the prestigious 2009 Toy of the Year Award in the Travel Games & Activities category. The MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set received the 2009 Preferred Choice Award in the Travel Games & Activities category. The Magnetic Wooden Number Match Up Puzzle received the 2009 Preferred Choice Award in the Puzzles category. The MagnaColeraze Search-A-Word Coloring Puzzle received the 2009 Seal of Excellence Award in the Word Puzzles category.
The Creative Child Awards program was created by Creative Child Magazine, a publication that provides parents with the latest information on how to nurture their child's creativity. The winners of the Creative Child Magazine's Toy Awards are chosen by a panel of more than 100 moms and early youth educators who rigorously review each product submitted to the Awards program. All award finalists are chosen by the very same people who would purchase the products themselves.
"We are honored that the MagnaKase was chosen as a winner of the prestigious 2009 Toy of the Year Award by Creative Child Magazine" says Maya Gowri, President and Founder of MagnaPlay. "We are very excited that real moms and educators have recognized MagnaPlay by selecting our educational travel toys for awards in multiple categories. MagnaPlay will continue to innovate and develop creative activities that will enable children to learn while having fun, anywhere, anytime" says Maya.
The MagnaKase is a unique, patent pending, magnetic activity case that can be used with various magnetic and coloring activities. Magnetic toys have become increasingly popular in recent years. Currently there is no case in the market that can hold various magnetic and coloring activities, and also serve as an activity board during travel. Children are known to have a short attention span and get bored very soon with their activities. The MagnaKase offers a very significant advantage as it is an open-ended toy when combined with other MagnaPlay activities designed for the MagnaKase. Children can engage themselves in different activities for extended periods of time, especially while on the go. During travel, children can use the MagnaKase Magnetic Dry Erase Activity Case as an activity lapboard while in a car seat, in a flight, in a restaurant or even during a picnic as it is just the right size.
"The idea for the MagnaKase was born when I, a mom who travels extensively with my young son, realized that the solution to keep children fully engaged during travel would be a magnetic activity case that is compact and easy to travel with, and offers a secure activity surface for multiple entertainment activities along with compact storage for these activities" adds Maya. MagnaPlay Educational Travel Toys are winners of Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Children's Products Award for 2009.
The MagnaKase is eco-friendly as "the write-on wipe-off" feature of the case reduces the use of paper for drawing and coloring. Currently there is no other case in the market that can hold various magnetic and coloring activities, and also serve as an activity board during travel. The MagnaKase Magnetic Dry Erase Activity Case comes with two Magnetic strips that secure children's favorite coloring pages to the activity surface, for coloring with crayons, color pencils or markers while on the go. Coloring pages and markers can be stored in the MagnaKase.
The MagnaKase Magnetic Dry Erase Activity Case and the MagnaPlay Magnetic Coloring Travel Set are currently on sale for $20 and $30 respectively. These durable, child-safe educational travel toys can be purchased directly from the MagnaPlay Online Store. Consumers get an additional 15% off existing summer sale prices when they use the coupon code MP-PC-2009 (Valid till July 31, 2009).
