NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Concerned parents will soon be making their holiday gift lists and checking them twice—not just to see who is naughty or nice, but to make sure the presents they intend to give reflect their parenting strategies appropriately. If they are following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics whose president, Dr. Bernard Dreyer, was quoted earlier this year as saying "Unstructured, unplugged playtime is very important for all children and especially very young children," (http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/03/21/a-reconsideration-of-children-and-screen-time/?_r=0 ), then battery-powered toys and devices are off the 2016 holiday list. So what's a parent (ahem, Santa!) to do? Focus on the fundamentals of play and give something wacky!
Wacky Links™ is a DIY kit that encourages kids to use their imagination to explore their creative side. Olivia loves dress-up? With Wacky Links™ she can create her own bracelet, belt, or ring to show off her personal style. Hudson likes to race cars? He can use Wacky Links™ to make his own racetrack. Mom's hosting the extended family holiday dinner? All the kids attending will spend hours putting together and taking apart these colorful tubes that connect with fun pronged charms.
With themed kits ranging from rock & roll to safari, dinosaurs to winter wonderland, Wacky Links™ is the right gift for any 4-8 year-old. Creative Child Magazine already gave the original Wacky Links™ kit a thumbs-up this year when they bestowed upon it both 2016 Product of the Year and Creative Play awards, but just wait 'til your kids get their hands on the new Wacky Links™ Connector kit. Its multi-pronged charms allow kids to build in all directions—so that tiered necklace Emma wants to make is super simple, and that obstacle course that Jack imagined is totally doable!
Wacky Links Kits, which contain enough tubes and charms to make 15 bracelets, will only set Santa (wink-wink) back $9.99. CEO Vanessa Nornberg proudly declares "Kids love the open-ended fun of Wacky Links™--and parents can pat themselves on the back for getting kids out from behind the IPad and inspiring them to work on their fine-motor skills instead!"
Wacky Links are available at play-conscious toy stores across the country, and on Amazon.com.
Wacky Links is wholly committed to the importance of play. Our award-winning Wacky Links™DIY kit is made of soft colorful tubes that connect to iconic charms. Boys and girls love to use their imagination and Wacky Links™ to create bracelets, necklaces, backpack charms and more! Ultra-light, parents can bring Wacky Links™ to restaurants, doctor appointments, or vacation getaways for hours of entertainment. Wacky Links™ can be used, taken apart and put back together or exchanged for hours of creative play. Wacky Links™ make everyone want to build, wear, share!
