Awards Go To Strength Ball , Space Hopper , Hologram Chamber & Solar Airship
Myrtle Beach, SC (October 18, 2010) – This month thoughts of tricks and treats haunt parents and children alike. Dr. Toy celebrates the zany holiday with her own treat-filled list of Best Children’s Products for the year. Lucky for Wild Creations™ she awards not one but five prestigious honors to their expanding novel product line. Giant Retro Space Hopper, Hologram Chamber, Strength Ball and Solar Airship are individually recognized for a Dr. Toy Best Picks/Best 100 Children’s Products 2010 awards .
Additionally, the Strength Ball was also named to her Dr. Toy 10 Best Active Products list. Want a jolly good time for your kids,” asked Dr. Toy as she tested the Giant Retro Space Hopper, “while getting them off the couch and away from their handheld gadgets? Try one of Wild Creations British imports of active toys,” she offered. “Kids and parents will be very pleased at the assortment of Wild Creations intellectually stimulating science and nature toys for children & adults of all ages.”
Dr. Toy’s Best Picks Children’s Products award program was developed by noted play and childdevelopment authority, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (aka Dr. Toy) as a service to consumers who desire to purchase safe, affordable, educationally oriented, stimulating new toys for children. In addition to Dr. Toy, industry judges have been wild about the 80+ kooky new products rolled out this year by Wild Creations. The company earned kudos from Tillywig Toy Awards, Parenting Media Awards, The National Parenting Center, Mom’s Choice Gold Awards and Parent Tested-Parent Approved Media on a host of products in just the last 90 days.
Listed below are reviews Dr. Toy and her testers wrote about each of the four Wild Creations award winners:
Giant Retro Space Hopper • $23.99 • Ages 10+
Dr. Toy Best Picks Children’s Products 2010
This bright orange and utterly irresistible hopper comes from the UK Science Museum. With a grownup’s help, inflate this giant ball with the enclosed foot pump. Get comfortable, hold on to the horns and bounce away! Kids use the elasticity of the space hopper to amplify their muscle power. This giant hopper expands to a whopping 31.5 inches for bigger kids.
Hologram Chamber • $8.99 • Ages 5+
Dr. Toy Best Picks Children’s Products 2010
Like something from a Harry Potter chapter, place any object in this chamber and see it appear to hover. Created by the UK Science Museum, this chamber creates an optical illusion, tricking you into thinking a reflection is the real object! Try any object and witness 3-D images appear to float.
Solar Airship • $15.99 • Ages 5+
Dr. Toy Best Picks Children’s Products 2010
On a bright sunny day take this airship kite outdoors and watch it fly. From the UK Science Museum, this cleverly designed toy doesn’t require pumps, gas, puffs or hassle! It’s so simple to use – inflates and rises outdoors due to the laws of physics, as it is easily explained in the instructions. It flies like a kite-- so hold on tightly! A tether line, 2 cable ties and controller are included.

We've filled orders for the Keystone Classic Builders Series Kit after having them available after ONE DAY!
That's enough to press on and offer it as a complete EcoAquarium™!
Our Keystone Classic EcoAquarium is a rare third version of our EcoAquarium™ series, and will be available for only a VERY short time.
We had discontinued our Watergarden EcoAquarium late last year, when our supply of the distinctive tapered tanks ran out. But just recently, while rearranging the warehouse, one box of the tanks turned up! Since we no longer have the vases or the long-stem Lucky Bamboo to make Watergardens, PRESTO!... the Keystone Classic was born!
You won't find them in any stores, for the moment this is a WEB EXCLUSIVE!
Larger than the Classic, but still filling the same footprint, the Keystone Classic offers the best of both worlds, and with so few of them available, you can count on having a virtual one-of-a-kind EcoAquarium™. Don't wait! They are not going to last long!

After requests by our customers, we've responded by offering our popular EcoAquariums in kit form with everything EXCEPT FROGS!
We've had calls from customers wanting a second tank, or to replace a cracked tank (BAD DOG!). Now there's a easy solution with our Builder's Series. Tanks, rocks, living & decorative gravel, & Lucky Bamboo....all ready to go. Just add water and your favorite critter.
Also, for a limited time, we're offering a "new" tank... "The Keystone Classic". Up until late last year, we offered our Watergarden EcoAquarium with it's distinctive tapered tank and large Lucky Bamboo stems in a tall chimney vase. It was a popular item which sadly had to be discontinued when we ran out of the distinctive keystone-shaped tank.
Fortunately, while rearanging our warehouse, we've uncovered a box of these tanks which had been misplaced and mislabled. A very limited supply, so while they last, we will be offering our Keystone Classic, in our Builders Series. If you missed out and didn't get a Watergarden, here's your chance on getting what may be one of our most sought after EcoAquariums.
