Patch launches highly-anticipated new preschool toy line

BELOIT, Wis.— The wait is over. The newest, most inspirational preschool line to hit the market in years is finally here. Patch Products is delighted to launch its preschool toy line Mirari, an answer to parents seeking back-to-basics, classic play.

Giving children stimulating, quality toys at a young age provides them with the tools they need to grow, thrive, and learn. Through play, children explore their world and experience wonder and fulfillment, opening a world of possibilities. Knowing this, Patch created a line of preschool toys named Mirari™, from the Latin word “wonder.”

These toys are designed to be engaging, but parents will love their educational value as well. They are perfect tools for helping with fine and gross motor skills and cognitive learning, sensory and emotional development.

The 9.5" durable play tablet features 20 colorful light-up images and 40 fun sounds and phrases that activate when children press the arrow buttons. Children will have their very own learning pad to play with, and they’ll have fun pretending to be like mommy and daddy with their tablets! Pushing each button will activate two different sounds, including phrases and sound effects. For instance, you might reveal the sound of a choo-choo train or hear the phrase, “Balls are round!” For ages 12 months and up.

Busy Buddy™          
Children will be delighted by this adorable 9.5" toy featuring six removable shape-sorting and color-matching gears! Once all of the gears have been correctly placed, they will move ‘round and ‘round with a simple turn of the knob, encouraging children’s hands-on exploration and discovery. And as a lively bonus, Busy Buddy’s eyes blink and ears wiggle when the gears move! For ages 9 months and up.

Roll & Return Ball™
This amazing 5.5" diameter ball is two toys in one. Children can play alone, rolling the ball and chasing after it to roll it again, delighting in the continually-upright penguin and fun sounds of the inner balls. Then, using the simple side switch to change modes, an adult can now roll the ball along its lipped channel, and it rolls back! Children will think it’s magic! For ages 6 months and up.

Wee Keys™  
These keys will unlock exploration of multiple senses! Children will hear fun beeps and realistic car sounds when they press the light-up buttons on the key ring. And, each 3.5" key features a different pattern texture for children to explore. It’s a colorful set to keep children entertained and busy! For ages 6 months and up.

Pop! Pop! Piano™
When children press a key on the piano, they not only hear a sound, they see stars pop up! The clear arch guides the popped stars onto a different pipe so when another note is played, they’ll pop some more! Adults can remove the arch to allow the stars to land on the floor, for more active fun catching the stars. Pop! Pop! Piano measures 9" x 11" x 5.34" with clear arch attached. For ages 12 months and up.

Zig-Zag Xylo Train®
Children will enjoy making music by tapping the xylophone keys one by one. Even better, when children want to move on to another toy, simply unfold the instrument and it becomes a pull-along train! Children can tug on the string to watch the colorful 17"-long train chug-chug behind them! An attached mallet will help children reveal six different tones. For ages 18 months and up.
