QUALITY TOYS OF LASTING VALUE
AMERICAN SPECIALTY TOY RETAILING ASSOCIATION (ASTRA) MEMBERS NAME SNAP CIRCUITS ARCADE TO THE 2015 “BEST TOYS FOR KIDS AWARD” LIST
Wheeling, IL (July 7, 2015)– SNAP CIRCUITS ARCADE, manufactured by ELENCO ELECTRONICS, has been honored with a 2015 Best Toys for Kids award by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA), ELENCO announced today.
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 helps kids build creativity, toys that fascinate and delight babies, and even toys that will help preteens unplug from electronic games and 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 Kathleen McHugh, 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.”
“SNAP CIRCUITS ARCADE, along with the others on the Best Toys for Kids Award list, go way beyond the pre-programmed, ho-hum play of so many heavily advertised toys and gives kids play that truly challenges their imagination, creativity, and other skills,” continued McHugh.
James Cecchin, Vice President of Sales at ELENCO, says that what makes SNAP CIRCUITS ARCADE unique is how it encourages learning about electronics and infinite STEM concepts with fun learning activities. “This may not be the toy the TV commercials tell your kids to bug you about, but it will be one they play with over and over again. Rather than scripting everything for your kids, SNAP CIRCUITS ARCADE lets them make up the play themselves,” notes Cecchin.
