Fat Brain Toys shows off Twisted Boards at the PLAY exhibit July 10 2015
We recently became friends with Mark Carson, the president of the VERY cool toy company Fat Brain Toys. Fat Brain Toys is the "brain" child of Mark and was created to be a source for toys that don't just get used and thrown away a few days later, but toys that inspire creativity, growth, and learning in the kids and people that use them. He started the company for his own children and since then, it has become one of the larger toy companies in the United States. They do a tremendous volume and are really fun and great people.
Mark told me that Fat Brain Toys had been invited to collaborate on a unique and really amazing project with KANEKO in Omaha, Nebraska. The project was to be called, "PLAY" and was entirely focused on showing the importance of play in children and how it affects their development. Mark used this as an opportunity to show off what he's known for years, that play doesn't have to be in front of a computer screen or tablet and that play involves all of the senses. It is really an amazing exhibit and if you are in the Omaha area, I recommend you check it out! Mark writes, "While the Twisted Boards are only briefly in the video, rest assured that it’s getting lots of attention at this fantastic exhibit! The PLAY project can be viewed here or seen in the video below.
