Felt Mosaics Earns Video & Review in Time to Play!

Posted by design on Apr 5, 2012 in Press Articles, Product Feature

Felt Mosaics has earned an excellent review from Time to Play Magazine, adding to the growing voice of public approbation. Time to Play gave Felt Mosaics an average of 4 out of 5 stars, along with an informative, thoughtful review and an accompanying video.

The editors pointed out that the activity, which they felt was best described as a puzzle toy, brings different things to kids of different ages: “The brightly colored triangles and tactile aspect of Felt Mosaic will keep younger children engaged, but older kids will probably have more fun trying to puzzle out how to recreate the designs and images on the cards, especially the harder cards…kids can also engage in open-ended play with the triangle pieces, placing them however they want on the board and creating all sorts of different designs and creations.”
