– February 15, 2007 – Techno Source, a leader in electronic toys and games, announced today that Parent to Parent has named two of its products as the "best of the best." Techno Source’s Sudoku Mega Touch Screen is the Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award™ winner for "Best Toy" of 2006 and Sesame Street® My First TV Fun and Games has been honored as the "Best New Toy" of the year. In addition, both toys are recognized in the "Top 10" and "Best 100 Products of the Year" categories. Techno Source’s entire line of Sesame Street products was cited in the Best 100 Products category. The Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award™ program recognizes products of outstanding quality that support family values. Honors are granted based on feedback from child care facilities, experts and parents nationwide.
"Receiving top honors from Parent to Parent puts our Sudoku Mega Touch Screen and Sesame Street My First TV Fun and Games in select company," said Eric Levin, EVP of Techno Source. "We are thrilled to receive these endorsements. The awards reinforce that our products are not only fun and educational, but also kid tested and parent approved."
A recent edition to the Techno Source best-selling Sudoku line, the Sudoku Mega Touch Screen features more than 2 million world-class computer-generated puzzles, 8 levels of difficulty to challenge logic skills, a tutorial mode for beginners, and a Sudoku Solver that lets users input puzzles from their favorite sources to solve or play. The game is fully illuminated for play anytime, anywhere and includes an easy to read, simple to use extra large touch screen.
"Our family testers found that Techno Source’s Sudoku Mega Touch Screen provides hours of fun," said Jodie Lynn, syndicated parenting/health expert, author of parenting book, Mom CEO, and CEO/Founder of www.AddingWisdomAward.com.
"Sudoku Mega Touch Screen promotes and encourages individuals to increase their vocabulary and it inspires intellectual stimulation. Best of all, old and young alike, found the puzzles intriguing and challenging...a hard thing to do with today's kids, especially teenagers," adds Lynn.
The My First TV Fun and Games plug and play system allows children to learn through matching shapes, letters and numbers with their favorite Sesame Street friend Elmo. To insure that the game play, educational content and overall usability of the product were appropriate for Sesame Street’s core preschooler viewer, Techno Source worked closely with the early childhood development research team at Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street.
"With My First TV Fun and Games, the high quality of graphics that appears on the TV is unsurpassed in mutual fun-filled interaction. My First TV Fun and Games promotes and encourages young children to increase their pre-kindergarten knowledge while inspiring intellectual stimulation," said Lynn.
