$16.95 Astronaut Helmet Named 2014 Toy of the Year

Lake Barrington, IL (June 26, 2014) – You don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot could be the mantra of every parent who has ever shelled out big money for a toy, only to discover their child prefers to play with the box it came in! Aeromax, makers of richly detailed pretend play products, has been awarded Creative Child 2014 Toy of the Year for its affordable $16.95 Youth Size Astronaut Helmet. With this toy, kids are encouraged to let their imaginations soar without breaking the bank.

Launched at NY’s Toy Fair earlier this year, the space helmet was designed for explorers ages 3 and up. The pint-size head gear doesn’t skimp on vivid details like a moving visor. Aeromax is known to offer rich accents on all of its dress up clothes and accessories. In fact Creative Child judges raved that their “quality and durability is number one, along with a great price.”

Look for this imaginative item along with a galaxy of pretend play props at Booth 317 at ASTRA’s Marketplace:
