Eight Awards in JUST Eight Months for the Exploracise Gymathtics DVD

Not only is the Exploracise Gymathtics DVD exercising minds and bodies of children across the country but it is being recognized by the most prestigious awards in the Toy and Educational Industries.

Just announced last week, Gymathtics won the Dr. Toy 100 Best Products 2009 and Dr. Toy 10 Best Active Products 2009. As a parent, I know that a Dr. Toy Award is like winning Olympic Gold and winning so many awards in such a short time has been an honor.

We just received the review from the National Association for Gifted Children Recommended Toy List. Only 14 products were selected for the recommended list and will be included as part of a display at the NAGC convention in November. In the September issue of Parenting for High Potential, the review reads as follows:

"A brilliant idea to combine math and exercise, this revolutionary DVD teaches math and healthy lifestyle concepts while performing a complete exercise routine. The exercise program is great for kids of all ages, while the math facts are targeted at traditional second through fifth-grade levels. After viewing this DVD, our testers continued playing this new "game" on their own, finding fun and creative ways to stretch and move their bodies into triangles, planes, intersecting lines, and a variety of other mathematical concepts. Besides getting the kids moving, this DVD's value as an inspirational tool for young math lovers is invaluable." This years NAGC recommended toy list testers considered many variables when deciding on products to include but the overall theme was "Finding Value in Play". "It is such an honor to win this prestigious award. Our first show launching the company was at the 2008 NAGC conference in Tampa and to be included on the Recommended Toy List for 2009 shows our commitment to helping children of all levels learn through fun interactive techniques," states Exploramania Founder, Carrie Scheiner.
