Animal Environmental Heroes has a new arrival - Baby Bear 399! 

Green Kids Club™ proudly retells the true story of Sister Bear, or Baby Bear 399’s life, her cubs, and her interaction with wildlife photographer, Thomas D. Mangelsen. Who explains, "These aren't just any bears, they might be the most famous grizzlies alive today on the planet. For all these people, catching a glimpse of them is the thrill of a lifetime."

Green Kids Club™ Classic Books teach children about the environment, animals around the world, and small but significant ways that they can help.

Armchair Fun... For Seniors!

You’ve heard us say it for years...ages 3 to 103! And, we now have a product speci cally designed for that second age group.

Armchair Fun for Seniors came out of our work with Occupational Therapists as well as with the Life Enrichment Directors at Senior Living Facilities. The need: something easy to see, easy to use, reusable, and forgiving.

Just as Wikki Stix Creatables work well for preschoolers, those same characteristics make them an ideal medium for the senior crowd. Bright and colorful...easy for older eyes to see; soft and pliable... easy for arthritic ngers to work with. Endlessly reusable and totally forgiving...makes them ideal for all ages! Plus, Wikki Stix help with concentration and focus.

Working with three Senior Living Facilities in the Phoenix area, we learned what kinds of activities are most popular in the arts and crafts programs...and what kinds of materials the Activity Director looks for.

And...Armchair Fun for Seniors was created! Fun and entertaining, it is well suited for use as a solitary pastime...as well as for interaction with family and friends. Armchair Fun for Seniors comes with a sturdy lapboard, so Wikki Stix doodling and creativity can be enjoyed in the comfort of a favorite chair.

You’ve had the question, “what can you suggest for my grandfather to do, now that he’s moved in with us?” With 96 Wikki Stix and lots of activities, Armchair Fun for Seniors is the perfect answer.

We have also created a large, commercial size kit, designed for use in senior living facilities. Both the Armchair Fun for at-home use and the larger package are in stock and available for immediate shipment.

The baking competition card game loved by kids and adults 

Hasty Baker is a delightfully engaging family card game where players collect ingredient cards to complete various dessert recipes as quickly as they can. Why the haste? Because until your recipe has all four ingredients, your opponents can sabotage you with Strategy Cards. Strategy Cards have a wide range of powers, such as the ability to steal ingredients opponents have played, replace all the cards in another player's hand or your own, completely wipe out an opponent's recipe-in-play, causing them to start a new recipe from scratch, and more! Completing recipes is how you earn points and the first player to get five points, wins!

Hasty Baker was designed to be simple enough for kids to understand quickly with art and subject matter they love, while having enough interaction and strategy to make adults come back for more. Every recipe card has a colorful, eye-popping illustration of a mouth-watering dessert such as berry cheesecake, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and blueberry pie, to name a few. Each lists the four ingredients required for completion. The ingredients are playful characters that you can’t help but love.

Hasty Baker is surely the hottest family game to hit the market this year and was created by GoChuckle, a new family-run company with the goal of facilitating better family bonds through face-to-face interaction. Since being released in mid-December 2019, Hasty Baker has already gained overwhelming praise. It was granted the Tillywig BEST FAMILY FUN award for 2020 and was also endorsed by Allison Victoria-Wolfe, the season 15 winner of Food Network’s cooking competition “Worst Cooks in America”. As positive reviews continue to emerge, it won’t spend much time on the shelf, in the store or at home.

Children are naturally inspired by the simplicity of soft granular sand - a boundless medium. Watch as they will dig, pile, sift, compact and more. Sandtastik® Sparkling White Play Sand provides tactile and sensory stimulation necessary for the development of a child's imagination, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills such as shoulder stability, forearm rotation, wrist control, and hand strength. Sand play also encourages creativity, visualization and social interaction.

With the growing concern for health and safety in children's products, it is important to minimize the potential dangers from various unknown sources of sand. This is why our play sand products are the preferred choice for sandboxes, sand & water tables, sand trays in schools, child care centers, children's museums, therapeutic practices, hospitals, and homes around the globe. Our process begins with a specific type of silica-deficient rock and ends with the safety approval from the Toxicology Professionals at the Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, NC.
