During a panel discussion at a recent conference with top toy professionals, it was shared there are three growing trends within the toy business. They are
*The desire to get back to basics
*The wish to encourage the development of STEM/STEAM skills
*The want for toys with a collectability aspect.
Kardtects captures all three of these growing trends, naturally, by what they are.
They offer classic and back to basics play with a modern twist. Kardtects building cards, with their exclusive design, provides children the power to build the most amazing card houses with a new found ease. They are the ultimate building cards!
The building of these card structures also develop a child’s skills. Many of which are the vitally important and recognized STEM/STEAM skills. Kardtects is so proud to be part of these critical elements.
Kardtects’ mission is to encourage the building a child, and not just the building of card houses. There is an old quote that says, ‘What you build, ends up building you!’ We so agree! And Kardtects is building children up in the most wonderful and useful ways!
With technology expanding into all areas of our lives, and our children’s, back to basics toys are becoming more in demand to balance high tech toys with more basic toys. There is a desire to offer a type of play which encourages children to move away from the screens and buttons, and get back to basics; to get back to building their own skills by play.
It is realized that with back to basics toys children learn essential and fundamental skills. They learn how to use their own imaginations, creativities, and problem-solving talents while playing.
It’s been realized the more a toy does, the less a child does, and so when a toy is so filled with all the bells, whistles, and lights, a child doesn’t have a chance to develop his own joys of bells, whistles, and lights (so to speak).
The other growing trend, besides back to basics and development of STEM/STEAM skills, is wanting a toy with collectibililty. Kardtects is proud to have this too!
Each starter box of 111 Kardtects building cards comes with an ultra rare building card to add straight away to collections. Expansion Packs can be purchased to not only create larger card structures, but to add to building card collections. Each expansion pack contains collectible cards of various status. These are common, uncommon, rare, and ultra rare building cards.
Exactly which cards are included in a pack is unknown! This is so exciting for a child! What will they get? A child may receive the rare Crystal Skull Jungle Ruin card or maybe he will get the Troll under the Bridge card in the Grisroc set. It isn’t known, but always fun to collect whatever is in a pack.
No matter what cards received, they all will add to building card collections and transform starter structures to even more incredible card creations!
Kardtects continues to be on the front edge of FUN! Watch the following video to see an example of one of the extraordinary card houses a child could build!
