CreAtiles Spur Evolution Through Hours Of Intelligent Design

creatiles.jpegCreAtiles are big, soft, yet rigid panels and pieces that fasten together in a variety of ways to make a house, a boat, whatever. More importantly, and despite what their name might imply, they make your kid a WINNER in the evolutionary sweepstakes.

They were developed by Fiesta Crafts, and they just won some giant Toy Of The Year prize from some British toystore I've never heard of. [You tell me Hamleys is the F.A.O. Schwarz of London, fine, except that Schwarz is now an empty, post-bankruptcy shell coasting on its former brand glory, and who'd want to be that?]

Anyway, as Prof. Raj Prof Persaud, one of the jurors who awarded CreAtiles the Hamleys prize said, "'Play has a serious evolutionary purpose.'...research on animals showed that the more time they spent playing when young, 'the bigger their brains'." He then added, "Now where's my giant prop check?"
