This makes it all the more exciting that the reviewers have so quickly embraced and applauded our unique approach," comments Arnout Asjes, founder. "The console plays games - from a free ever expanding library of downloads accessed from the Swinxs website - talks, listens, and even referees, keeping kids entertained for hours."

For years, Creative Child Magazine has provided parents with an exceptional resource for finding both educational and fun toys for their children. Creative Child Magazine's Awards Program is unique in that more than 100 mothers and early youth educators review all entries. The reviewers who fill out evaluation forms at each toy station critique hundreds of toys, dolls, games, etc., on their positive value for children. Creative Child Magazine's staff collects the forms and tallies up the score at the end.
