• talking walnut goes to toy fair

    A lucky mom indeed, I was able to spend a day at Toy Fair in NYC and boy, did I get the scoop on all things fun for 2011. All week long, we’ll be talking about what’s hot for playtime as we look at some of the more entertaining playthings that caught our eye. First off, we’re especially excited that PBS Kids is launching its first-ever line of toys for toddlers and preschoolers. Don’t expect to see The Cat in the Hat or Curious George-themed items, though. Instead, the signature Dot and Dash characters that make up the PBS Kids logo are the main characters appearing among the more than 20 wooden toys. They include the Sounds of World Rhythm Set of musical instruments, Exploration Blocks and, our favorite, 3-Layer Puzzles in various themes like barnyard and camping. These aren’t your everyday preschool puzzles, but rather offer layer after layer of tactile surprises–perfect for the exploratory preschooler in your house. Speaking of surprises, stay tuned for more toy tidbits

    In a Nutshell: The educational TV brand your kids have come to know and love has entered the playroom in a whole new light. PBS Kids’ toys offer imagination stimulation without having to change the channel.
