 Five years ago the beloved toy store chain Brilliant Sky Toys & Books had the brilliant idea to cull through 10,000 high quality kids products that overflowed the shelves of their 17 locations and pick a few favorites. They dubbed them the Brilliance Awards. This year's 2014 award list features 10 products that are surprisingly low tech:

  •         Squigz Starter Set (24 pieces)
  •         Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (480 pieces)
  •         Lottie Dolls
  •         Doodle Quest
  •         Create Your Own Storybook
  •         Super Stadium Baseball Game
  •         LoopDeLoom
  •         Sew Cute Sets
  •         Illustrated Adventure Stories and Illustrated Fairy Tales
  •         Paint Your Own Porcelain Bowls

I was lucky enough to receive three of this years winners from Brilliant Sky Toys:
Doodle Quest- This game has kept my oldest involved for hours. Your draw on a separate piece of paper and try to navigate "quests" and mazes. This is the perfect game for those who lack a little hand/eye coordination or need help with fine motor skills...not to mention it is just mad fun! My 7 year old had an absolute blast with this, and I admit, I even got in on the action and it is definitely more of a challenge then it appears! This is actually a game that can be played alone or with up to 4 players! 

Create Your Own StoryBook- My son is very excited about this! We are still in the works on this one. I do not want him to sit down and start writing in the story book until we have the plot all worked out! You see, there have been countless times in his life he has made me sit down and create books with him, taping each page meticulously together so he could take his book into the classroom and read to his friend. I want this book to be perfect for him, a keepsake he is proud of! So, for now we are still in the "thinking" stages of this project, but you can only imagine how excited his little gifted/ imaginative brain is for this! 

Paint Your Own Porcelain Bowl- We just love crafts. My sons favorite date to go on with me is the ceramic place where we make our own pottery and they fire it in the Kiln. I love that this is one toy that, under careful supervision, baby boy can be involved in creating! I love that the finished result is something that I can display and that my boys can be proud of making for their mama! The best part of it is, there is three bowls so the others can be given as Christmas gifts to their Grandmother's! 

I am so sad that I do not have a Brilliant Sky Toys and Books near me, or even in the state of Florida. This store sounds like it is made after my own heart. Not only is one of the founders a Registered Nurse, like myself, but they place value on imaginative play toys, which I do as well. I think that the ability of using your imagination opens up an entire new world for children and adults alike. If I had an entrepreneurial spirit, I definitely think franchising this store would be of interest to me!

For this Christmas shopping season consider visiting Brilliant Sky Toys and Books. I believe it will be one shopping experience you and your kids will never forget!
