Posted on October 29 2020
Faber-Castell USA Creativity for Kids is honored to announce that the Big Gem Diamond Painting Magical Craft Kit is a 2021 Toy of the Year finalist. Every year, The Toy Association recognizes the top toys on the market for playgoers to vote on from a wide variety of categories. Known as the “Oscars of the toy industry,” Creativity for Kids is proud to have earned this nomination for none other than the “Creative Toy of the Year” category.
“The Faber-Castell USA team is really excited about this nomination. We have always held these awards in high regard. Recognition of our products this year is especially gratifying,” states Faber-Castell USA President and CEO Jamie Gallagher. “To know that children, parents, and gift givers are finding our brand as a source of comfort, enjoyment and creative play truly affirms our mission to Enrich Lives through Creativity and Self-Expression.”
Big Gem Diamond Painting Magical is included in a list of 117 finalists in 16 different categories representing 2021’s greatest toys for children of all interests. These finalists were selected by 18 judges including toy experts, retailers, academics, and journalists judging each toy’s creativity, design, play value, and marketing. The “Creative Toy of the Year” nomination was given to toys that allow kids to build and make items that are unique to themselves, a concept Creativity for Kids is very familiar with and incorporates when designing craft kits.
Big Gem Diamond Painting kits introduce children to the diamond painting hobby in a simple way by providing larger gems; the first of their kind. Fans of crafts such as cross-stitching, rhinestone painting, paint by number, color by number, and Perler Beading will find that providing their child with a Big Gem Diamond Painting kit is a great introduction into the methodical approach of arts and crafts. These kits are also great for practicing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skill development all while the child enjoys adding colors and shimmering dimension to sticker and sun catcher characters.
Along with the nominated Magical themed kit, you can also enjoy the kit in themes: sweets, sea friends, woodland, and holiday. Each kit includes everything needed to complete two diamond painting activities: 12 holographic stickers with printed dots for guided gem placement and two sun catchers with an open-ended design for children to choose color combinations and use their imagination.
