The Laser Pegs Educational Series Earns the Spring 2014 Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award for Mind-Building Excellence, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind, and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher order thinking skills.
The Academics’ Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners is posted online at AcademicsChoice.com.
The hundreds of submitted products that are not chosen by the Academics’ Choice Awards team (and many that are chosen) are donated to a variety of worthy charities and other organizations across the globe. About Academics’ Choice™: Academics’ Choice™ helps consumers find exceptional brain-boosting material. Academics’ Choice is the only international awards program designed to bring increased recognition to publishers, manufacturers, independent authors and developers that aim to stimulate cognitive development. A volunteer panel of product-appropriate judges, including parents, educators, scientists, artists, doctors, nurses, librarians, students and children, evaluate submissions based on educational benefits such as higher-order thinking skills, character building, creative play, durability and originality. Only the genuine “mind-builders” are recognized with the coveted Academics Choice Award.

Looking for a fun way to teach reading, writing and arithmetic? Check out the light up Laser Pegs® Educational Blocks. The kit comes with 12 Letter Blocks, 12 Number Blocks, 12 Word Blocks and a 3D Lite Board. Each block contains an LED that illuminates when connected to the 3D Lite Board. Combine and stack the blocks any way you can to make different words, sentences and equations. All of blocks are compatible with the other Laser Pegs® construction kits so you can build and learn at the same time.
With more than 35 fun games included for the beginner or advanced pupil, these blocks are a great way to get kids exited about reading, writing and arithmetic. The letter blocks can be used in a light up spelling bee (word list included), or to explore sounds and memory. Build and swap the word blocks (four words per block) into sentences. Teach balancing equations, order of operations, solving for variables, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with the number blocks. When the school day is over, you can even play three easy board games or use the Xs and Os to play tic-tac-toe.
To play, just install 3AA batteries to power and cycle through 4 light settings: Slow Flash, Fast Flash, Solid Light, and off. The board also acts as a storage bin to hold all your pegs when play is done. Laser Pegs® is a green, 100% recyclable product.
