NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It hasn't won a TOTY (TOY OF THE YEAR) award and you won't find it on the Parent Magazine Holiday Gift Guide, but every kid who gets one will be entertained for hours—no matter what he's into. Have a budding engineer on your gift list who likes to put things together and take them apart? Wacky Links™ lets Chase do just that. Raising a fashionista in training? With Wacky Links™, Emma can have a fashion show with all her own jewelry designs! Got a shy kid who needs a way to socialize? Wacky Links™ can help Allison make friends when she shares her tubes and charms with others.
The idea is simple, says Wacky Links™ CEO, Vanessa Nornberg-Barey: "Wacky Links™ are soft colorful tubes, like straws, that children can connect with pronged shapes such as stars, animals, music notes and more to make bracelets, backpack decorations, shoe jewelry, and anything else they can think of! Wacky Links™ aren't just fun, they're fun-damental. They encourage sensory experience, hand-eye coordination, fine motor-skills, and imagination. And since they can be used over and over again, their $9.99 cost is less than the cost of gas for Santa's sled."
So why aren't Wacky Links™ on this year's toy lists? Because the moms and dads behind the open-ended kits were so busy creating more themes to meet fast-paced demand for the series, and, well…being moms and dads, that they did not even have the time to submit Wacky Links™ to any of the review boards. Nornberg-Barey is fine with flying under the radar: "Parents that choose Wacky Links™ are essentially choosing to give their children the possibility to imagine, rather than gifting them with a specific experience. We won the Creative Product of the Year from Creative Child Magazine right after we launched earlier this year, and honestly, that speaks volumes for us. It's given out by parents and educators and these are the voices that matter most when it comes to understanding the power of play!"
And play kids will—thanks to the super selection of Wacky Links™ themes now available: original, princess, dinosaur, ocean adventure, safari, rock&roll, connector, and winter wonderland. Each theme includes different colored tubes and connectors allowing kids to build, wear, and share them.
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!
