Of All The Toys On The Market, Tillywig’s 2022 Best Creative Fun Award Goes To Tangle Original With Texture “To Heighten The Senses And Brighten Your Day, No Matter Your Age”
South San Francisco, CA (October 19, 2022) – We’ve all been there. Staring at a holiday gift list for every stage and every age from the neighbor’s child to your boss. Tillywig Toy & Media Awards has discovered the ideal present that’s actually been around for decades! Tangle® Original With Texture ($30) just snared the prestigious Fall 2022 Tillywig Best Creative Fun Award. This fresh reincarnation of the original fidget toy wowed Tillywig judges who see every new idea on the market!
“It’s easy to see why kids aren’t the only ones who find this multisensory toy to be utterly compelling and thoroughly entertaining!” begins Tillywig’s glowing review. “Whether approached as a playful diversion or as a purposeful way to nudge one’s brain into a receptive state of creative flow, the Tangle Original Textured makes for a pleasurable way to heighten the senses and brighten your day, no matter your age. Twisting and turning the connected curvilinear sections that make up the whole produces a chain reaction of endlessly shifting shapes, textures and color combinations.”
The Fall 2022 Best Creative Fun review continues, “Seeing the Tangle continually morph in response to often absent-minded movements creates a feedback loop in which things that occur by happenstance spark experimentation and exploration. Few things are energizing and relaxing at the same time, and this enormously fun way to achieve that end injects restorative and often inspiring moments throughout your day.”
Echoes the many consumers on Tangle’s website who have written in, this must-touch toy has been pleasing kids to business leaders — and everyone in between.
“I first discovered Tangles in a Walmart about 20 years ago. Since then I’ve given out at least 50; one to a little lady of 10 going through chemo. Children and adults alike love these wonderful fidgeters. The Tangle textures is my favorite because it provides sensation on so many levels. I’ve even entertained a Board of Directors while in a day-long meeting with them. It kept them awake and alert.”
