NEWEST VERTIPLAY™ AND PORTAPLAY™ ACTIVITY CENTERS REVEALED AT ASTRA BOOTH 1140

Whimsical Room Décor Entertains Little Fingers, Inspires Curiosity And Encourages Dexterity Through The Preschool Years

Singapore (June 22, 2017) – Oribel’s pledge of smart design and striking looks never disappoints grownups or little ones. Their newest product line, VertiPlay™, is exactly as its name implies, a gorgeous range of wall toys that “sit” on the wall so tots can stand and interact. Three new designs – Enchanted Garden ($44.99), Mystical Aquarium ($39.99) and Hoppy Bunny ($34.99) — makes their first appearance at ASTRA’s Marketplace Booth 1140.

Oribel encourages kids to stand and touch the walls once parents adhere an enchanting VertiPlay wall toy. This type of play is what parents have been wishing for. First, there are no toys on the floor to trip over! Everything stays up, on the wall. Second, kids are free to stand, sway, move or run, as they love to do after a few minutes of play. Cute characters like squirrel, hedgehog, birds and bears delight a child’s senses and invite them to play again and again.

“Nothing is ordinary,” proudly proclaims the designers on their colorful website, http://www.loveoribel.com. “We approach every product with a fresh perspective, ideating obsessively and designing passionately here in our Singapore-based studio.” Every Oribel product is meant to create solutions that make parenting days easier! And boy, do they!

First introduced in 2016, the praise from parents makes Oribel designers smile:

“I can’t recommend these toys enough!” wrote one mom about VeriPlay Goofy Moose ($39.99). “We are ‘small space living’ and these are a lifesaver for our space and our little one to be creative, learn developmental skills and have fun.”

“Our 2 yr. old absolutely loves this!” chimed in a parent gushing about VeriPlay TreeTop Adventure ($44.99). “And it’s super easy set up on the wall is a plus! Which means it can’t be lost or pieces won’t be missing!”

“I bought this for my daycare and all of the kids (2-5) LOVE this! The first day everyone was fighting over it, now they are much better about sharing. There is not a day goes by without playing with this wonderful toy :),” wrote in another TreeTop Adventure admirer.

Before VertiPlay, there was PortaPlay. When PortaPlay came on the market in 2015 it wowed all of the toy industry critics. The activity center develops gross motor skills, fine motor skills and offers a safe (and wash or wipe) environment.

The original PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center ($149) was named 2015 National Parenting Publications Awards GOLD Winner, Dr. Toy’s 2015 10 Best Active Products, Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products for 2015, Parents’ Choice Foundation Recommended Seal, Creative Child Magazine’s 2015 Product of the Year, baby activity center category, 2015 Tillywig Parents Favorite Products Seal and Toy Insider 2015. Oh, baby!

Look for three items on display at ASTRA, along with a POP display deal for retailers who want to show the line at its best:

VertiPlay™ Enchanted Garden • Ages 3+ • $44.99
This garden in a jar is a fun and interactive pretend play with two sets of magnetic pieces depicting two seasons — spring and autumn. It provides immense possibilities to create different scenes that will unlock the little one’s imagination to the wonderful possibilities of nature. Look around to spot hedgehog, squirrel, birds, bees, cacti, acorns, trees and more! No watering needed, ever!

VertiPlay™ Mystical Aquarium • 2+ • $39.99
Hmmm, can you see who’s hiding in plain sight? Go on a sea hunt to spot the crabs, octopus, polar bear (wearing a red scarf!), fishes, plant life and so much more. This “aquarium” will never splash so kids will want to get their hands all around the seascape. The play pieces vertically stack on the attached shelf at the bottom of this toy.

VertiPlay™ Hoppy Bunny • Ages 2 + • $34.99
This happy bunny hops over the entire scene to greet his friends. Say hello to squirrel, bear, mama bird, and baby bird. Little imaginations can make up a new story each morning about bunny and his pals. Each magnetic puzzle piece is sized just right for chubby fingers.
