As Toy Fair 2020 kicks off a new decade, there is a new crop of toys that parents and kids will want to get their hands on this year.
First up is Thames & Kosmos. They are known for their science-themed toys. With twenty-two new STEM experiment kits in its 2020 line-up, this year is no exception. From robotics to alternative energy to chemistry to human anatomy, these new products offer a wide variety of scientific topics for young children.
New Robots and More
Thames & Kosmos will be expanding its award-winning science kit lines such as Kids First™, I Dig It!™, and Ooze Labs™. The majority of these releases are screen-free. This is in reaction to the steady public demand for these types of products and an example that “techy” toys don’t need to go hand in hand with a tablet or smartphone.
Kids ages five to seven can build cute animal robots and classic wacky robots with Robot Pet Shop and Robot Factory. They can learn all about gyroscopic forces as they assemble and experiment with The Amazing Tightrope-Walking Gyrobot! Then there is the new Ooze Labs Colorful Crystal Lab. The Gross Anatomy kit is where kids will study human anatomy by actually making their own squishy models of vital human organs!
Getting into Crafts with Creatto
Thames & Kosmos is also launching into the craft category with Creatto. It is a new line of light-up crafting kits. The kits in this series use a simple yet versatile building system that consists of just two primary building components that can be woven together into countless 3D creations. Strings of LED lights are also included to illuminate the models from the inside out.
The first five kits in the series are Moonlight Elephant Safari, Magical Moose & Forest Friends, Starlight Kitty & Cutie Crew, Shimmer Shark & Ocean Pals, and Sparkle Unicorn & Friends. Each kit includes instructions to build four different models, but all components are compatible across the different Creatto kits. So kids can combine them to dream up all sorts of distinctive, colorful creations.
New Thames & Kosmos Games
A new year of Thames & Kosmos’ products would not be complete without additions to its rapidly growing line of board games. Fans of storytelling games can look forward to a new Adventure Games title (Adventure Games: The Volcanic Island), as well as four new additions the highly-acclaimed EXIT: The Game series. Other board game releases include The Crew (Die Crew); The Liberation of Rietburg; Aqualin; and My City, the latest from acclaimed board game designer Reiner Knizia. They also have Targi: The Expansion. This is a much sought-after extension for the popular two-player game, Targi.
