The Award Winning Creators of Rory's Story Cubes and Extraordinaires

The Extraordinaires® Design Studio Pro announced as Winner of the 2015 Parents’ Choice Gold Award

We are delighted to receive the 2015 Parents’ Choice Gold Award from the Parents’ Choice Foundation for the Extraordinaires® Design Studio Pro, available in America exclusively with Barnes and Noble.

Established in 1978, the Parents’ Choice Foundation is America’s oldest nonprofit consumer guide to quality children’s media. Experts in learning games across America, they test and review products within a stringent criteria for awards. As a Parents’ Choice Award® winner, we are elated at receiving such an honour and is a strong endorsement of our mission to foster creativity and empathy.

‘We thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and the outcomes; there's lots of learning and play value here. But the most intriguing take-away was to realize that design can be learned: that the questions, approaches and reflection can be trained so that the process can be applied to designing anything. That is where this kit shines brightest.’ - Barbara Chamberlin ©2015 Parents' Choice
