Crayola Glow Station Wins FamilyFun Magazine Toy of the Year (T.O.Y) Award
EASTON, Pa. --(Business Wire)-- Oct 07, 2008 The Crayola Glow Station has earned one of the most coveted awards given to the best toys of the holiday season -- the FamilyFun magazine Toy of the Year (T.O.Y) Award. The Crayola Glow Station received the highest honors a toy can receive with a coveted spot on FamilyFun magazine’s “Top 10” list, which calls-out the most outstanding toys from the 36 that make it into the November issue.
“We believed that this toy would become a must-have for the holidays, and we’re thrilled that the parents, children and toy experts who tested the Glow Station and rated it off the charts agreed with us,” says Mark Schwab, President and CEO, Crayola LLC. “The Glow Station speaks to what we do best; inspiring children to create in unlimited ways.”
What elevated the Crayola Glow Station to such hot holiday toy acclaim is the unique way it illuminates children’s imaginations through the magic of drawing with light in the dark on a large-size glowing canvas. Using a light wand, children can either draw freehand or use stencils and texture sheets to create more realistic drawings.
A diamond-shaped tip can be snapped on the end of the wand for stamping unique starburst designs on the canvas. Drawings magically disappear over time, or can be “erased” by turning on the lights, so kids can create again and again for unlimited fun. The suggested retail price for the Crayola Glow Station is $29.99. It can be found at all major retailers.
