“I had a fantastic time at the New York Toy Fair this year. I saw even more than I did last year and had a ton of fun playing with all the products and new launches! Some of them I can tell you about, but others I am sworn to secrecy until their debut! For the next few weeks, I will highlight a few companies (some rookies and some veterans) and share what stood out for me as being exciting, fresh, and of course… fun!
NumbersAlive!- Hello Numbers Discovery Pack
Hello Numbers Discovery Pack is a multi-sensory learning product that includes the friendly plush numbers of Team Ten along with Hello Numbers book, which introduces the characters. The combination of book and plush makes it a great way to introduce children to the fun and friendly number characters. The colorful plush numbers (0-9) are connected with magnets, which can be placed on your fridge or even made into a mobile! Each set comes with numerous activities involving all the number friends.
My daughter loves the book that is in this set. This interactive book introduces younger children to the characters of Team Ten. After meeting each number, they learn how Zero keeps the team together.
I met with the creator of NumbersAlive! at the Toy Fair. Since receiving her Ph.D in Statistics, Dr. Rebecca Klemm, The Numbers Lady, has specialized in explaining mathematical concepts via every-day simple language. Dr. Klemm has taught students grades 7 through graduate school. In 2010, she created NumbersAlive! to introduce children to math using the fun and friendly number characters of Team Ten.
Dr. Klemm strongly believes that numbers rule the world. She created her products to introduce numbers and the importance of math to children at a young age in order to help them develop into global citizens of the world with numerical literacy.”
