THE NATIONAL PARENTING CENTER REWARDS CITIBLOCS FOR BEING LOW-TECH WITH HIGH-QUALITY
Citiblocs Stacks Up Well Against the Competition For A National Parenting Center 2011 Fall Seal of Approval
Tampa, FL (August 23, 2011) - In a world filled with every imaginable "e-gadget" and "techno-toy," sometimes parents just want their children to have something simple. Something that doesn't need batteries, doesn't make noise and, absolutely doesn't tell a child what and how to imagine. So the National Parenting Center just awarded CitiBlocs a 2011 Seal of Approval because the judges want more parents to know that there are still some great, low-tech toys available.
The National Parenting Center judges were thrilled to see, first-hand, that parents aren't the only ones who want better toy options for their kids. The kids want it, too.

"Parents were excited to see how their children gravitated to this low-tech play set. Citiblocs are high-quality building blocks made with solid, sturdy wood and durable paint that feels like it will stand up over time. Building blocks are and continue to be a staple of childhood play for good reason. They spark imagination, creativity and when used in a group setting, offer a great opportunity for social interaction and cooperation. The option to build vertically really challenged children's minds and ingenuity."
