Dr. Toy's Review of the IMA Hero™ Collection
as one of the Best 100 Toys

As part of Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products for 2000, the IMA Hero™ Collection is highlighted on the Dr. Toy Web Site. The review states:

Teach your child about history through this collection of Teddy Bears who each represent a different historical personality -- heroes from history, music and the arts…The write-ups are well done with lots of good information…The collection pays tribute to the past and helps children understand influential people of the past. These bears are also soft and colorful.

Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Toy) is the Director of the Institute for Childhood Resources, founded in San Francisco in 1975. Dr. Toy produces an annual report as a service to consumers who desire to purchase safe, affordable, educationally-oriented, and stimulating products for children.

Dr. Toy's 100 Best Products were carefully chosen from among hundreds of products using extensive criteria. Dr. Toy "encourages parents and teachers to focus on the value of play as essential to the learning process. Children learn best through play, and these smart products will encourage children to maximize their potentials."

StarRise Creations and the IMA Hero™ Collection will continue to emphasize the importance of education and the value of teaching children at an early age.

Happy Learning!
