elope Wins Five 2015 Creative Child Magazine Awards!

We’re delighted to announce our 2015 winners of Creative Child Magazine’s Product Awards! This year’s winners featured a new lineup of kid-friendly dress-up and pretend play items that were literally head-to-toe: socks, accessories, our Bricky Blocks Neck Ties, and a knit hat!

Creative Child Magazine recognizes new products from a range of categories like Action Play, Educational Toys, Science Toys, and more. The new toys, gear, books, and kits are reviewed by moms, music educators, and early education professionals. It’s a deliberate, intense process based on a scoring system targeted toward nurturing creativity and education in children.

Only one product per category can win a Toy or Product of the Year award, which is why we’re deeply honored to learn that our officially licensed Dr. Seuss Horton Accessory Kit stood out as the category champion in Dress-Up and Pretend Play.

“We love Horton because he stands for acceptance and friendship instead of bullying, and it’s exciting for us to see that this product resonates with parents and educators, too,” said licensing manager Chris Therrien.

Remaining finalists receive a prestigious Preferred Choice award, and the Seal of Excellence is an award given to products that are not finalists but do exceed expectations based on the judges’ awards criteria.

The Dr. Seuss Horton Accessory Kit by elope features Horton’s lovable ears and hair tuft on a headband with a Whoville Flower and.

“Our Design Team enjoyed translating one of Dr. Seuss’s most loyal and beloved characters into an accessory kit that allows kids to dress up and become one of their favorite heroes. It’s a win for reading and for friendship,” said Therrien.
