Superstructs BIG Builder Wins Dr. Toy 2005 Awards

Erie, Colorado -- September, 13 2005 -- The 'Superstructs -- BIG Builder' set has been named one of the 'Ten Best Active Products of 2005,' and appears on the '100 Best Children's Products of 2005' by noted child development authority Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Toy), Director of the Institute for Childhood Resources in San Francisco. Winners of the 14th annual awards were carefully chosen from the hundreds of children's products entered. Some of the criteria used to determine winners were educational value, development of learning skills, good value for the price, fun, creativity, age-appropriateness, cultural and ethnic diversity, and improvement in the understanding of the community and the world.

The 126-piece Superstructs BIG Builder set gives children everything they need to build detailed, hard working, construction vehicles. With the BIG Builder set's easy-to-assemble, brightly colored parts, kids can build a working forklift, dump truck, crane, or utility truck. And once they have mastered building the big rigs from the instructions, they can take them apart and use their imagination to build other great creations! The set retails for $35.95 and is designed for children ages 4 through 12.

"To be named by Dr. Toy as one of the year's best active products, and one of the top children's products overall, is testament to the positive impact on learning and child development of Superstructs BIG Builder," said David McCloskey, president/founder, WABA Fun, LLC. "Superstructs help to create the stepping-stones for childhood learning and offer valuable playtime for young builders. It's extremely rewarding to know that the experts agree with the philosophy behind our educational, fun line of construction toys."

Superstructs are the vibrantly colored, plastic rod and connector-style construction and educational toys featuring safe, durable EVA foam panels that 'pop' between the rods and connecting joints. Each theme-based set includes multiple model possibilities and fun-to-build characters and accessories that add personality to the sets, and extend the post-construction play possibilities. Each Superstructs set is designed with young builders (and parents) in mind and includes an easy to follow, visual step-by-step construction guide.
