This year has been phenomenal! MagStix building sets have been flying off the shelves. We started out the year connecting with hundreds of moms with MomCo Moms playgroups, meeting families at a handful of community fairs, news appearances, and we have received a number of end-of-the-year awards.
The list of awards include, the top toy of the 2018 Parents Choice Award, a top editor pick for Cincinnati Family Magazine, the 2018 Memphis Parent Toy Guide, the Special Needs Resource Foundation of San Diego and highlights from a number of other Parenting sites. The highlight of our summer was interviewing with the Deseret News and appearing on Studio 5 with Brooke Walker.
We have also do a lot of giveaways with sweet moms on Instagram who rave about their kids playing with the MagStix – one told us her toddler got up at 3 am and wouldn’t go back to bed because he was so enthralled with the MagStix (sorry @raising.arrows.x2).
Finally, we were thrilled when we were chosen for the 2018 Dr. Toy Award– PhD Seveanne Auerbach, aka Dr. Toy, has spent more than 30 years studying toys and the way toys relate to child development. Throughout her career, learning toys has been at the heart of Dr. Toy’s research. Some of her resume includes working at the United States Department of Education and getting a Ph.D. in child development. She also wrote a book “Dr. Toys’s Smart Play_ Smart Toys: How to Select and Use the Best Toys and Games.” So much of why we started BizyBeez, was to help children learn and connect – because play is learning. So we were thrilled to hear MagStix made Dr. Toy’s list.
We can’t thank you all enough for joining us on this amazing ride to bring peace and joy to millions around the world. So far the BizyBeez message has reached well over 100,000 people and close to 10,000 families have brought MagStix into their home. This next year we anticipate introducing new educational toys to go along with the MagStix, continuing to promote peace and joy in the homes of families throughout the globe.
