Dr. Toy recently released her picks for the 100 Best Children’s Products for 2011. Among the fantastic products selected is ThinkFun’s newest game, Cartoon It!
Dr. Toy, a.k.a Stevanne Auerbach, releases this list each year to “encourage parents and teachers to focus on the value of play as essential to the learning process.”
“Children learn best through play,” says Dr. Auerbach, “and these smart new toys and products encourage children to maximize their potentials.”
Dr. Toy's Best Picks were carefully chosen as worthy of attention from among thousands that she has reviewed at toy fairs, catalogs, and through many other sources, and by using extensive criteria she has developed over many years. Among the criteria used are: safety, age-appropriateness, design, durability, lasting play value, cultural and ethnic diversity, good transition from home to school, educational value, learning skills, creativity, improvement in the understanding of the community and the world, good value for price, and, naturally, fun.
