Is It Any Wonder Learning Express Named Tangle, the Global Tactile Sensation For Generations, Among Its Top Two Sales Increase Winners?
South San Francisco, CA (July 21, 2022) — When your brand keeps pace, year after year in sales, that’s good news. But when your annual sales increase more than all of the competition on the toy shelves, that’s remarkable! Learning Express just awarded Tangle®, Inc. its prestigious Second Place 2022 Sales Increase Award. (For those curious, they were bested only by Kellytoy, makers of Squishmallows!)
Retailers adore and consumers can’t resist the twisty hands-on toy that inspires creativity and imagination with interconnecting links on a 90-degree curve that click together and pivot at each joint. These bendable creations, that have no beginning and no end, have been a hit since the 1980s! New for Summer 2022 are Tangle® Pets Aquatic ($8) a collection of six seaside creatures that inspire play in the tub or the pool. Families hoping to squeeze out a few more hours of outdoor fun are captivated with Tangle® NightBall® Volleyball ($25).
“The response to our new products is always so overwhelmingly positive; it’s incredibly humbling!” expressed Nicholas Zawitz, Tangle Creations President. “It’s a true testament to the Tangle toy that in the 40+ years since its creation, the Tangle continues to be a source of infinite creativity and joy to kids and adults of all ages.”
Octopus, dolphin and string ray? Oh my! The six sea-loving Tangle Pets Aquatic characters may shake up the nightly dinner conversation (or inspire a future book report).
Tangle Creations (tanglecreations.com) continuously gets rave reviews online on its latest products and at times, unexpected gratitude!
“The octopus Tangle is my favorite Tangle in my collection!” wrote one consumer. “It has everything I like – purple and green colors, all the pieces are transparent, the bumpy green pieces are very stimulating, and the twisty purple pieces are really soothing to touch! I’m autistic and have high tactile stimming needs – this is the best one for me!
“My absolute favorite! I got the sting ray, narwhal and hermit crab ones,” texted another delighted consumer, “and they’re all awesome! The colors are really beautiful, and the sparkles are pretty. The textures are really nice and they’re quiet, so I can use them in public spaces. Would absolutely recommend and would rate more stars than five if I could.”

Since 2012, we’ve continued to innovate on this idea of Building a Better Ball with the continuous addition of new sports and games to our lineup. Year over year we are amazed by the success and popularity of the line. It inspires us to keep innovating and growing the NightBall® brand of light-up sports balls!”
