We are incredibly proud to announce that four Strictly Briks products were named “Best Toys” by Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. Our Brik Tower and Starter Set Big Briks received Gold Seals and our Brik Buster game received the Platinum Seal! Our Cube and Pyramid set also received an honoree shoutout in the award description for the Brik Tower.
The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio was started by mother/daughter duo Joanne and Stephanie. In 1989, Joanne was already a well-known expert on children’s play and toys, authoring 40 children’s books in addition to parenting books and articles. Stephanie was practicing corporate law in NYC and was amused that her mother played with toys for a living. When Stephanie had her first son and discovered that no independent consumer information about children’s media existed, she and Joanne began the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. Their products are selected by experts in child development, children’s literature and education, and tested by “the most objective panel of judges - kids.”
Check out what the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio had to say about our products:
"A good choice for mixed age players with lots of rounds of play. Rebuilding takes thinking skills as well as cooperation. Aside from playing this game, kids can use the Briks for constructions."Learn more and buy Brik Buster here.
"What a great way to build an original setting for plastic bricks!... this set make good sense for dedicated builders. The set is sized for smaller peg blocks and is compatible with Lego and Megablocks for kids 5 – 12." Check out our Brik Tower and Stackers here.
The Cube & Pyramid:
"...reversible plates that can be used with large bricks on one side and smaller bricks on the reverse side… the Cube and Pyramid set of square plates... hinge together to form a cube and triangles to form rooftops and pyramids or whatever they can imagine." Check out The Cube & Pyramid here.
Big Briks Starter Set:
"It's an open-ended construction toy for preschoolers to use as they are or along with their other plastic construction sets. The basic briks are compatible with other large pre-school sized plastic bricks such as Duplo and Megabloks. Add props such as vehicles or animals and kids can build their own themed constructions."
