Arx 2.0, Smarty Blocks, and Teeter Popper Chosen to be Tested by 50 Goddard Preschools Nationwide
Smarty Blocks, Arx 2.0 and Teeter Popper, three new releases from Fat Brain Toy Co. have been named as finalists to the 7th Annual Goddard School Preschooler-Approved Top 10 Toys. Throughout the month of October, 50 Goddard schools throughout the US will test this year's best toys. Children ranging in age from six weeks to six-years-old will ultimately determine the Top 10 Toys for the season while Goddard teachers observe and document how the toys rate among the selection criteria.
According to Goddard School, research-based criteria determined which toys were sent to testing. Among other qualities, toys chosen as finalists retail for $40 or less, actively engage a child’s interest, meet safety standards, and encourage children to work together creatively.
Last year, both Squigz and Tobbles Neo created by Fat Brain Toy Co. were named to this prestigious list. Ultimately, Tobbles Neo was named the overall top toy through a nationwide social media contest. Nebraska-based Fat Brain Toy Co creates and designs toys which closely align The Goddard School system's play-focused philosophy and “F.L.E.X." (Fun Learning Experience) approach.
