THE ORB FACTORY Designed for kids ages 6 and up, The Orb Factory’s Fuzzeez Spotted Dog lets kids create their own Fuzzeez friend. Kids place the colorful fluff inside of the Fuzzeez form and spray it with warm, soapy water. Once the form is filled to the top, just snap it shut and put it through the washer and dryer. Once complete, pop open the form to reveal kids’ creations. The PlushCraft Puppy Pack lets kids make three puppy pals by using the stylus to punch fabric pieces into the form. The easy illustrated instructions help kids decorate all three puppies with colorful fabric pieces and glittering eyes. Designed for kids ages 5 and up, PlushCraft Puppy Pak requires no sewing.
WINNING MOVES USA Rubik’s Junior Bear, from Winning Moves USA, is an easy-to-grip bear that is much simpler to solve than the original Rubik’s Cube. Designed for kids ages 4 and up, Rubik’s Junior Bear serves as a training cube. Winning Moves will also offer The Original Rubik’s Cube, available in its original packaging—exclusively for the brick-and-mortar specialty market. It comes complete with the original stickers, logos, and instruction booklet.
TUCKER TOYS Tucker Toys’ E-Z Grip Balls feature a soft but tough outer web that make it easy for kids to catch. The balls deliver a high bounce on any surface, including grass, sand, and water. Tucker Toys extends its collection with three new E-Z Grip Balls, including a football, a soccer ball, and a go-anywhere Jr. version. The E-Z Grip Football’s tough outer web is made for one-handed catches. The E-Z Grip Jr. 4.25-inch ball fits in backpacks and bags, and is ready to bounce on any surface. The E-Z Grip Soccer Ball’s bounce helps it quickly travel down the field, and its high-grip outer web makes it easy for goalies to catch. With a more aerodynamic design, the new Phlat Ball Aeroflyt hovers in the air to go farther with every throw. Similar to its Phlat Ball predecessors, its suction-cup center provides a spontaneous, time-release return to its ball shape while mid-flight.
