Over 50 Award-Winning Products for 2015-2016!

Horizon Group USA’s vast variety of children’s activity kits has won over 50 awards in the past year. From S.T.E.M. kits to classic crafts and jewelry making kits, Horizon Group has proven to be a true innovator.

The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio was founded in 1989 as the only independent consumer reviews of children’s media by child development experts Joanne Oppenheim and her daughter Stephanie Oppenheim. Unlike most other groups that rate products, they do not charge entry fees from manufacturers. When consumers see the award seals on products, they can be assured that they are “award-winning” because they were selected by a noted expert in child development, children’s literature, and education, and further tested by the most objective panel of judges…kids.
