The Mom’s Choice Awards® (MCA) evaluates products and services created for children and families. The program is globally recognized for establishing the benchmark of excellence in family-friendly media, products and services. The organization is based in the United States and has reviewed thousands of entries from more than 18 countries. Excerpt from Mom's Choice Awards website: http://www.momschoiceawards.com/about-us/
Several sample toys are evaluated by experts and tested by mom's and children for eight weeks to determine what toys meet the highest standards for family friendly fun.
Creative expression and imaginative pretend play are the focus of all Metamorphic Toys. Everythingland Silly Signs give kids a springboard to imaginative pretend play. The graphics on the Silly Signs are generic and open ended, allowing the children to fill in the blanks using their imagination.
The three reversible sign placards have a blank side on the back for children to create their own signs. Silly Signs allow kids to practice different kinds of communication and give them a tool to learn about setting boundaries. It's a great way to empower kids to take control of their play.
Metamorphic Toys is proud to announce earning Dr. Toy’s Best Green Product Award 2012. "We were excited to get such a prestigious distinction so early in our company’s history, not only for using eco-friendly manufacturing and materials, but also for making toys that foster the natural creative imagination of children that is so critical to their healthy development,” says David Berglund, president and founder of Metamorphic Toys.
Exercising creativity and imagination and engaging in pretend play is a natural instinctive behavior for children and essential for healthy cognitive, social and emotional development. Metamorphic Toys dubbed this naturally creative self-driven activity “Green Play.”
This is the underlying principle behind the design of our toys and is the ground from which our “Green Toys” take root.
Dr. Toy recognized this as a critical factor in awarding the Mailbox and Eco-Art U-Stick’ems the honor of Best Green Product 2012.

Dr. Toy has included us in a select group of manufacturers, the Alumni, based on Metamorphic Toys commitment to providing high quality, innovative, open-ended, creative, environmentally responsible toys.
Metamorphic Toys are designed and manufactured in the U. S. A. from high grade materials. The elegant abstract geometric design inspires children to personalize the toys using their natural creativity. The pretend play then springs forth from the unique imagination of the children playing with the toys.
The products are made locally in Minnesota, using the highest quality recycled natural materials that are 100% recyclable and biodegradable and hand assembled and packaged by Opportunity Partners, an organization with a commitment to train adults with disabilities to be employable and self sufficient.
The eco-friendly Everythingland Mailbox is a unique 3-dimensional canvas ripe to unleash the creativity that bubbles and percolates in young minds. It is shaped just like the curbside mailboxes mounted on posts on countless suburban and small-town streets throughout the United States.
An open-and-close door allows favorite objects to be stored in the mail receptacle. The white cardboard exterior is ready to receive artistic attention in all forms. The several dozen Eco-Art U-Stickems that accompany the mailbox are different from common stickers, which are typically peeled off a non-recyclable, non-biodegradable backing sheet. Eco-Art U-Stickems purposely have no adhesive. Instead, apply them using glue, paste, or tape you already have on hand, or make your own eco-friendly paste using instructions included with this kit. That real-life mailboxes hold almost magical properties for young kids as a source of both anticipated and unexpected treasures makes Everythingland Mailbox an ideal imaginative toy. Its use as both a canvas for self-expression and as a prop inspiring interactive play will give your child countless hours of absorbing fun.
