August 2008

For the first time ever, TDmonthly Magazine has given In the Lab awards to two deserving prototypes that display sharp design, quality and play value. Likely to make a positive — and artistic — impression on the specialty market once launched, these products invite creativity and easily add style to any space. Along with the other 42 winners of TDmonthly 2008 awards, these products are also featured in TDmonthly's 2008 Specialty Toys Report, "Positive Toys for a Promising Future."™

Each Twig set consists of 72 wooden pieces; all are compatible with one another. The interactivity between components means limitless combinations in open-ended play. Launch date: February 2009.
