At Laser Pegs we strive to make unique toy construction sets that kids love, spurs their creativity and helps them develop skills, all at the same time. We also hope to be seen as innovators in our field, by offering kids cool toys they can’t find with other toy designers. That innovation was launched in April 2009 when we released our first building set to the global market. What is so unique about Laser Pegs toy construction sets, is that they light up by each piece feeding the next piece low voltage current. You can design and build any lighted abstract model that your imagination allows. Laser Pegs can be used lit up or turned off. Once the Laser Pegs are connected to a power source it then illuminates any other peg it is connected with, making this a very creative construction toy set indeed. It goes without saying that it means a lot to us to receive the recognition of industry leaders, parents and educators for the toy products we produce. So we’re happy to share here on our blog that Creative Child Magazine recently awarded Laser Pegs with three awards during their 2013 Creative Child Awards Program.

We are proud to be recognized by Creative Child Magazine, because they encourage parents to seek out toys that will nurture creativity in children. Laser Pegs toys are designed to enable this creativity because there are so many different options available with our building toy kits. The Creative Child Awards Program is unique because all of the entries are reviewed by a diverse group of “judges” that includes parents, educators and professionals. Many people are weighing in with their votes and these are all people who have a stake in supporting toys that help kids learn and utilize their creativity. These are people who actually purchase the toys versus a small independent panel that doesn’t understand the benefits that building and construction toys can offer to kids. About Creative Child Magazine Creative Child Magazine is a national magazine that comes out bi-monthly and describes itself as being “essential and the most complete parenting publication for raising well-balanced children.” We are humbled and grateful to receive these awards. Thank you to everyone who voted for us!
