It’s always good to have someone to look up to, a sort of “target” for the company. For us, it has been Fat Brain Toys in the United States, which has a wonderful website, with a selection of toys that resemble our own range.
And now, Fat Brain Toys started to manufacture his own toys, and they are absolutely wonderful … so wonderful to Tobbles Neo, one of their stacking toys, won the “Toy of the Year – Baby and Infant” at Toy Fair in Germany last week.
You can see all winning toys here, and a cute video about Tobbles Neo here.
Tobbles comes in two varinter – Tobbles and Tobbles Neo. They are the same size and with the same number of pieces and some different colors, but there are a few differences:
- Tobbles has a slightly harder surface, and Tobbles Neo has a coating which makes the slightly softer to hold, and a little easier for small hands.
- Tobbles Neo has a jagged edge, and Tobbles has a smooth edge.
- Tobbles Neo is recommended for children from 6 months old, and Tobbles from 2 years. The difference is due to the surface – Tobbles is a bit more difficult for little hands to hold.
We got our first Tobbles delivery in October 2012, and sold out well before Christmas. But today we got in a new shipment! We have also received several fun construction toys from Fat Brain Toys, coming out on the Web eventually. Check here to see all the Nice toys from Fat Brain Toys!
