CHICAGO, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today VTech® announced its Sort & Discover Activity Cube™ was chosen as one of the Top 10 Preschooler-Approved Toys by The Goddard School®. Winning toys for the 9th annual toy test were evaluated first-hand by thousands of children in 50 Goddard Schools across the country. Submissions were judged on the toy's ability to encourage interaction and child-initiated play, promoting creativity and collaboration – all while maintaining the child's creative interests over time.
"We're honored that our Sort & Discover Activity Cube was selected as a Top 10 Preschooler-Approved Toy," said William To, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Our Baby, Infant and Preschool toys are designed in collaboration with our Expert Panel to support developmentally meaningful skills and experiences, so we're pleased that our Activity Cube met the approval of the ultimate toy experts themselves – kids."
The Sort & Discover Activity Cube features five sides of fun. Little ones will love exploring seven fun activities and two electronic panels that introduce colors, numbers, animals and more. They can turn the book page, twist the spinner and slide the animals to develop fine motor skills. The activity cube also develops hand-eye coordination with the shape sorter and colorful shape blocks.
"By exploring a range of toys that have been carefully evaluated by our early childhood education team, children help provide insight into both the educational and 'fun' value of some of the most exciting new toys on the market," said Dr. Craig Bach, Vice President of Education, Goddard Systems, Inc. "The Sort & Discover Activity Cube was a big hit with our testers and provides great educational value to our preschoolers, something we're always striving to offer at our schools.
The Sort & Discover Activity Cube is designed for ages 9-36 months and retails for $29.99. Additional information can be found at www.vtechkids.com/learning.
