I received some of the Brilliance Award Winners mentioned in order to facilitate my post. All words and opinions are my own.

I’ve been visiting Brilliant Sky Toys & Books for awhile now.  Our local store has such an amazing selection plus the opportunity to play hands-on with a number of different toys.  Bubbles would move in, I think, if they’d let her; she asks to visit any time we’re even remotely in the area.

Brilliant Sky Toys & Books of Louisville

Every year for the past five years, Brilliant Sky Toys & Books has gone through the thousands of toys and books sold through their 17 locations around the country and selected their favorites.  These favorites are known as the Brilliance Award winners and they are chosen based on quality, the value of open-ended play, and the simple beauty of a child’s fascination and delight.  This year they’ve selected 10 pretty amazing offerings, and they are the following:

  • Squigz Starter Set (24 pieces)
  • Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (480 pieces)
  • Lottie Dolls
  • Doodle Quest
  • Create Your Own Storybook
  • Super Stadium Baseball Game
  • LoopDeLoom
  • Sew Cute Sets
  • Illustrated Adventure Stories and Illustrated Fairy Tales
  • Paint Your Own Porcelain Bowls

Brilliant Sky Brilliance Award Winners

Recently we had the chance to get hands-on with a few of these Brilliance Award winners and let me tell you – they chose some pretty awesome stuff.  For example, the Squigz?  They might be one of my favorite toys from this year.

Brilliant Sky Brilliance Award Winner - Squigz

The Squigz are a building set that lets you build in multiple directions at once.  They have suction cups at either end that stick to other Squigz pieces as well as flat surfaces, letting you defy gravity somewhat.  And they make a really fun POP sound when they’re pulled apart that Bubbles gets a kick out of.

If you have a Brilliant Sky Toys & Books location near you, you really do need to stop in and check out the 10 Brilliance Award winners – and everything else they have to offer.  Be sure to check in with your local store, as ours has fun weekly activities like story time.  Plus they have some great sales you wouldn’t want to miss, either.

Which of the Brilliant Sky Brilliance Award winners is your favorite?
