)-- Kubit2me, Inc. is pleased to announce that two games in the Kubit2me product line of unique, colorful plush self-expression games – Lil’ Scholars Edition and Now You’re Talkin’ Edition – have been selected to receive three Dr. Toy Awards for 2009.
Kubit2me Lil’ Scholars Edition was selected to receive two awards – Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Socially Responsible Products for 2009 and Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products for 2009. Lil’ Scholars is a plush game that is tossed from player to player, teaching young learners basic number and letter skills, along with important social skills like freely expressing oneself and actively, respectfully listening to one another.
Kubit2me Now You’re Talkin’ Edition was selected to receive Dr. Toy’s Best Picks for New Products Award for 2009. Now You’re Talkin’ is a high-energy game of self-expression and social interaction for the family, where players toss thought-provoking questions to one another. Game questions focus on beliefs, opinions, relationships, and issues that affect our everyday lives.
Dr. Toy award recipients are carefully chosen from among thousands that are reviewed by Dr. Toy, using extensive criteria she has developed over many years, and meeting her high standards for safety, design, durability, social responsibility and value. According to Dr. Toy, “Children learn best through play, and these smart toys and products encourage children to maximize their potential.”
“We are extremely honored to have received these prestigious awards from Dr. Toy,” said Mary Kay Russell, inventor of Kubit2me games and president of Kubit2me Inc. “We created Kubit2me games as a fun way to encourage open and honest communication while breaking downs walls and barriers, and we’re very excited to not only receive these awards from Dr. Toy, but also to receive the enthusiastic, positive response we’ve had from parents, educators and child development specialists nationwide.”
Kubit2me games’ unique design and fuzzy, physical fun factor make it the only plush, interactive game on the market today, serving a purpose beyond the thought-provoking (and sometimes silly) questions and laughter they supply. Kubit2me games were designed to encourage positive social interaction, trust and empathy, connecting parents with their children and kids with each other, and getting kids of all ages to open up like never before.
