The Canadian Toy Testing Council has awarded a Victoria-based business, Creative Kids at Home
(http://www.creativekidsathome.com), three stars - their highest rating - for their Gift Subscription for children to receive craft packages in the mail. Parents can use the Toy Council’s ratings to help them choose toys that their children will love.
The Canadian Toy Testing Council (http://www.toy-testing.org/) is a non-profit organization, working for parents by testing toys and helping them make good toy purchases. Every year, hundreds of toys are selected as representative of those being offered on the market. These toys are then tested by Canadian children in everyday settings, to assess design, function, durability and play value.
"Three Star" ratings represent the Council's highest recommendation, and are awarded to toys distinguished by excellence in design, function, durability and play value. Local Mom, Christine Nicholls (owner of Creative Kids at Home) says “Parents rely on the Toy Council ratings to choose toys that their children will enjoy and are good value for the money. Creative Kids at Home is
honored to have our children’s Gift Subscription earn such a prestigious rating.” The Toy Testing Council review found that “Children love to receive Mail! ... A wonderful gift to give and receive!”.
Nicholls started Creative Kids at Home to provide families with a new gift giving option. Children receive personally-addressed craft packages in the mail. They get the fun of making crafts, the surprise of receiving packages in the mail, and the sense of accomplishment from a finished project. Parents know that all the craft supplies are included in each package. Makes a great idea to pass along to family or friends.
With a Creative Kids at Home gift subscription, children receive six craft packages (supplies and instructions) sent throughout the year for
$35.99 Canadian. http://www.creativekidsathome.com
