From Hydro Blasters to Parachutes We've Got Your Summer Covered!
Hong Kong, China (July 11, 2012) - Given the chance, most youngsters would readily pull the plug on the latest electronic game or gizmo for a chance to squirt friends, siblings or Dad. Toymaker Prime Time International understands that kids just want to be kids and the company prides itself on offering an array of active toys to keep youngsters mentally sharp and physically fit - at an affordable price!
Think a few minutes of running around is no big deal? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "…it has been suggested that encouraging unstructured play may be an exceptional way to increase physical activity levels in children, which is one important strategy in the resolution of the obesity epidemic. Perhaps above all, play is a simple joy that is a cherished part of childhood."
KidsHealth.org seconds that thought with their own strategy: "besides spending more and more hours on media diversions (often, up to 7 hours a day), kids are also multitasking — leaving the TV on while surfing online and fielding text messages from friends. It's up to parents to get them unplugged and outside."
Parents can look to award-winning Prime Time Toys and their 2012 lineup of backyard, pool, playground, park and beach toys. Grownups provide the water, kids generate the air power to shoot, blast, dive and delight in old-fashioned child's play.
But note that these toys are not your father's squirt guns. Imagine turning that water into a 35-foot blast of action. Whoa! That's the power behind the new Hydro Blaster line of toys. Kids with access to a pool will want to grab the new diving toys including the Sunken Treasure.
Prime Time Toys can be found everywhere - from the largest mass-marketers to Toys R Us, Dick's Sporting Goods and Academy Sports to hundreds of specialty retailers and a growing list of online sites including amazon.com, toysrus.com and target.com. Watch them on YouTube where foam water shooters, pool toys, dart shooters, flying toys, diving games and splash toys can be seen in action before purchasing.
