“Each year, hundreds of new toys hit the shelves,” a TODAY producer online wrote this morning as the Oppenheim Platinum toys were unveiled on national TV “and it can be hard for parents to determine what kids will go crazy for. Thankfully, the experts at the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, are here to help busy parents wade through the infinite number of new items to find the hottest toys for kids of every age.”

At age 5 and up, Magnutto® Junior sets were spotlighted for developing a tot’s EQ (Emotional Quotient). Launched just this year, each Magnutto® set allows youngsters to identify, express, understand and respond to emotions. “Because children need to learn to read more than just words.”

The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Seal Award 2016, representing the most innovative, engaging new products, was given alongside a gushing review: It also was honored with a SNAP Award, (Special Needs Adaptable Product) given to products that can be used by or easily adapted for children with special needs.

“We really love this new series of magnetic activity playsets that are engaging and meant as a starting point for discussing feeling and moods with your kids. Each set includes over 100 play pieces that have thick foam backing (so that they’re easier to pick up), two play boards and a magnetic easel that is cleverly designed to sit in the box. In Make a Pet, kids love creating their own pets with various moods. There is also Make a Dino — which will be a huge hit with dino-lovers! In Make a Mood Set there are faces to design with a ‘mood.’”
