When I heard about Brilliant Sky Toys, I so wished there was one nearby! As there isn't, I was still blessed to be able to look through their list of award winning toys, books, and games to get Christmas ideas for my kiddos. The store has come up with a list of 10 Brilliance Award winners, and my children and I definitely applaud their choices. I had the opportunity to review 4 of these toys, all of which are wonderful!
We chose to review the Plus-Plus Mini-Basic (a super cool building set all of my kiddos love. It came with instructions to build SO many things and, once you've got down how they work, they foster so much creativity!), Lottie Dolls (a favorite in our house), Create Your Own Storybook (my daughters love writing and this actually publishes their book!), and the Sew Cute Owl Set (my daughter has been wanting to learn to sew and she absolutely loved this set, and so did I). I love this selection of toys!

And here's a video of one of our favorite toys: the "Autumn Leaves Lottie Doll". I absolutely love Lottie Dolls! They're so sweet, and so perfect--very original and unique, and a great option over Barbies. Many of them are scientists, animal lovers, nature girls, and just all out active and charming little ladies.
For the fifth year in a row, parents and grandparents alike can use this brilliant list as a guide for holiday shopping, birthday presents and Thanksgiving homecoming gifts. The Brilliant Sky chain chooses its Brilliance Award Winners upon quality, the value of open-ended play and the simple beauty of a child's fascination and delight. With the huge variety of toy buying occasions coming up, there’s truly something for everyone represented in this great group of toys. From finger puppets, arts & crafts kits, dolls and building bricks, it’s evident that childhood playtime really hasn't changed that much!
