Tillywig Awards | Laser Pegs

Our Helicopter and Power Block Laser Pegs were among the Tillywig winners.

Every day, we here at Laser Pegs get to hear from wonderful parents and children about how Laser Pegs have made a big impact in their lives. Whether our light up Laser Pegs kits allow them to come together for family play time after school, they have improved a child’s motor and sensory skills, or they are helping a child to do better in school, we are so happy that many families around the world have made our Laser Pegs toys some of their favorites!

However, Laser Pegs are not just a hit with parents and children. We were recently honored to take home two big awards from the annual Tillywig Toy and Media Awards! Every single year, this awards program helps to bring light to the best new toys, games, apps, music and books of the seasons for both consumers and retailers.

This year, both the Laser Pegs MPS 300 Helicopter and the Laser Pegs Power Block 9100 won two separate Tillywig awards―the 2013 Sterling Fun Award and the 2013 Tillywig Top Fun Award, respectively. The following reviews for each toy were written up by the judges at the Tillywig Toy and Media Awards:

The Laser Pegs MPS 300 Helicopter

“This single set, using the same colorful, connectable pieces, lets you build four different helicopter models, each of which lights up using the special Laser Pegs design. The set includes a mobile power source that feeds low voltage current through the special toy construction, illuminating the connected pieces with a beautiful, futuristic glow. In addition to the power source, the set comes with 2 Laser Pegs, 45 Construction Parts that snap easily together, and an instruction manual that details how to assemble one of the four models (Attack Helicopter, Cargo Helicopter, Rescue Helicopter, T-1 Super Cobra).”

Tillywig Toy Awards are especially extraordinary because they look at number of different important factors when determining what really makes a toy the best of its kind:

  • Ease of First Use: Clear, easy-to-understand instructions and product design are key factors in creating a positive initial experience.
  • Replay Value: It was fun the first time out, but will it be equally or even more enjoyable over a period of weeks, months…years?
  • Quality/Appearance: Does it look and feel well-made? Is it something retailers would be proud to have on their shelves, a parent would be proud to give as a gift? Is it, from all appearances, built to last?
  • Social Interaction/Fun Factor: Products that effectively promote a high level of face-to-face playful interaction receive a high rating from us. If participants laughed out loud, so much the better!
  • Creativity: Does it inspire creativity during use/play? Does this product actively fuel the imagination?
  • Thought Processes/Motor Skills: Does it encourage new ways of thinking or promote physical development?

We here at Laser Pegs are honored that our toys not only fulfilled the important qualities above, but were loved enough to be voted for the 2013 Sterling Fun Award and the 2013 Tillywig Top Fun Award!
