Creativity for Kids is excited to announce that two craft kits received a Platinum Award from Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. This is the highest award given by this organization to recognize outstanding products in the marketplace. Each product is carefully considered and tested by educators, parents, and kids to determine which provide enriching and engaging play experiences for children. The review process aims to discover products that are entertaining and encourage learning, plus are well designed and safe for children to use.
And the 2011 Platinum Award goes to:
