New Toy Alert: The Great Wave & Sunflowers

Posted by aMuse Toys on March 15, 2012 0 Comments

We added Master Kitz to our repertoire of beautiful playthings last year and are thrilled to have received thier most recent kits this month: The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai and Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh.

We simply love the exposure to the art masters that these kits provide with easy-to-understand learning materials. Children (and adults) learn the story behind each masterpiece and why it has a special place in the history of art.

 

aMuse Toys team member Allison couldn't resist taking one of these kits home for a mom and daughter weekend art project. Check out their final masterpiece!

Have pictures of your Master Kitz creations? Tweet us, tag us on Pinterest, or post to our Facebook wall. We'd love to see them!

Toy Fair Finds: Eco Bonks

Posted by aMuse Toys on February 15, 2012 0 Comments


Our mission every year is to find beautiful, purposeful playthings and so far Toy Fair 2012 is proving to deliver on just that.

We simply can't explain how excited we are to add Eco Bonks by Pueri Elemental to our roster of quality playthings. Their beautiful design, eco-conscious beginnings and Made in the USA manufacturing make them an aMuse Toy Fair 2012 Top Pick.

The concept of an earth-friendly and exquisitely designed, inflatable bop-bag was born of a parent's desire to have a durable and attractive alternative to the flimsy and disposable offerings of the past.

The first release will include three adorable characters Abigal (elephant), Jackson (bear), and Logan (penguin) with Emma (owl), Noah (whale), Lily (gibbon) soon to follow. Each bop bag is made of biodegradable vinyl and includes one soft cotton character cover [additional covers sold separately]. A portion of every purchase will benefit the Wildlife Alliance in support of animal protection and forestry preservation. 

What we love: Made in the USA [some components are made in Maryland!], bio-degradable and family owned.

Look for these at both locations and amusetoys.com in June. Preorder via email at mail@amusetoys.com

The Learning Tower Giveaway!

Posted by aMuse Toys on December 13, 2011 0 Comments


If you've been to our stores then you've surely seen the Learning Towers on display.  How could you not, they are right next to one of our most popular play areas --the Quadrilla marble runs!

Almost daily we hear a parent tell their child "oh no, no you can't get up on that" to which we cheerfully reply, well, actually they can and we welcome it; because it's fun to be in the middle of all the action --in this case the action being a few dozen marbles racing through the track.  

For children, the world is a magical and curious place. Kids learn by mirroring actions with the ultimate goal of being able to do things independently and feel like an active member of the family. 

The Learning Tower provides safety and versatility not found with traditional step stools. It's the only step stool on the market carefully designed to meet the specific needs of young toddlers 18 months and up. It's constructed from the highest-quality layered birch and has a quick and easy adjustable platform to grow with kids from 18 months up to 6 years. The four-sided railings provide support while children climb in and prevents falling while inside the Tower.  Incredibly, it also holds 500 lbs --so it won't be out grown anytime soon.

The Learning Tower nurtures a child's innate desire to be independent, and to participate alongside parents and siblings. It makes a perfect holiday gift for any family!
