Last year I was an ambassador for ASTRA, The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) and they have invited me back this year to help them with their Holiday promotions. First ASTRA is kicking off the “I Heart My Neighborhood Toy Store” campaign and giving you the chance to win some exciting prizes. Check Out this video where I talk about the whole program. We received the Potholder Pro and compensation to bring you this post and video….

For now I can share with you some information about the Best Toys for kids 2013. Over 550 of America’s top independent and neighborhood toy retailers have selected the Best Toys for Kids. Drawing upon ASTRA’S expertise, experience, and commitment to fulfilling play, ASTRA members hand-picked the most engaging, unique, open-ended, fun, and safe toys for your children. The 2013 Best Toys for Kids list features toys that deliver exceptional value and expand a child’s imagination, toys that invite discovery and exploration, toys that get kids moving, toys that build creativity, toys that fascinate babies, and even toys that delight hard-to-shop-for pre-teens. All of these toys are categorized in such a way that it makes it very very easy for you to find the toy for your age group or child’s characteristics.
