Marketed as The Ultimate Giant
Construction Building Toy, Toobeez-saurus Maximus Funwithus (Toobeez) was officially
introduced to homes across the United States last fall in a very successful direct to
consumer sales campaign. Toobeez is the flagship product of Connectable Color Tubes, LLC,
a privately held company based in Pennsylvania. Toobeez will be on display at the upcoming
American International Toy Fair February 15-18 in New York City.
Toobeez is a life size
construction toy that features colorful tubes and spheres that lock together at many
different angles. Tube sizes range from nearly 11 inches to 3 feet and are one and a half
inches in diameter, making them easy for children to handle and maneuver without
presenting any choking hazards.
According to Joseph A. Donahue, founder
and owner of the company and the original developer of Toobeez, This is a natural
step up from other small piece construction toys that kids love to play with.
Our product has already captured the attention of many schools, daycare centers,
childrens museums, and caring parents across America. said Donahue. The target
audience for this new and innovative product is from 4 to 104 years of age.
Toobeez helps to promote family
interaction, and gives you the freedom to create whatever you can imagine. You can build
many different types of structures, such as forts, castles, playhouses, mazes, obstacle
courses, dollhouses, puppet theatres, soccer goals, airplanes, spaceships, or dinosaurs.
The possibilities are really almost endless. As an educational tool it can also help to
develop various motor skills, as well as cognitive and language skills.
A New Educational Product For Specialty
Toy Stores and Educational Institutions
Building on the success we have
achieved thus far, we believe we are well positioned to gain significant market-share by
focusing on the specialty toy store segment, private educational institutions, toy
catalogs, and some select web retailers across America. Additionally, we are receiving
international requests on a daily basis said Donahue. To date, heres what have
some of our current Toobeez resellers and customers have said:
We ordered our set of Toobeez in
September 2003 for our 5 year old Daughter, and it has been a lot of fun so far. We like
it because it encourages new creativity. The amount my family spends just on batteries for
my childrens toys is just phenomenal. It's about time someone invented a toy
that's fun, encourages thinking, and is battery-free. A parent's wishes have come true
here in Minnesota! Bob R. - Minneapolis, MN
What we really like about the toy
is that it really encourages adults and children to play together. When parents and
children are playing and working together, they are going to learn together. Thats
our goal to have fun and to learn. Jennifer Bush, Gallery Program Manager at
The Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia
We position product quality, child
safety, and the educational value of Toobeez as the first priorities. The
Companys goal is to be a world-class provider of quality construction toys and
entertainment for children, while demonstrating enduring social and environmental
responsibility to add significant value to all, Donahue said recently. Toobeez will
be featured in booths #6248, 6233 (ASTRA), and 6261 (Night Light Works, Inc), at the
upcoming American International Toy Fair February 15-18 in New York City.
