Have you heard of Brilliant Sky Toys & Books?
You might remember hearing a lot about them last year around Christmas time. Brilliant Sky Toys & Books is a franchise chain of local specialty stores. Not only do they sell awesome toys, but they offer awesome concierge-style customer service!
Check this out…
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a concierge service for grownups who needed a toy, today, wrapped and guaranteed to delight the little recipient? What a brilliant idea! Shoppers who are lucky enough to live near one of 15 Brilliant Sky Toys & Books specialty stores already take advantage of this concierge-style superior customer service, free gift wrap and wide range of fabulous finds. Plus, customers can be sure to pick the perfect toy as the 4th annual Brilliance Awards, chosen by the toy store franchise chain, are announced, featuring a dozen perfect playthings.
This year Brilliant Sky Toys and Books Named 12 Kid Favorites to their 2013 Brilliance List!
Priced from $12.99 to $84.99, the top 12 Brilliance Award winners are an eclectic bunch, just like today’s kids. The list includes Lego City Brickmaster ($29.99) for the future engineer, How Big Is The Lion? ($14.95) book for an educational storytime plus Melissa & Doug’s Deluxe Magic Set ($34.99) for the family entertainer. An easel, darts, toy treehouse, chubby vehicles, circuit board and world map puzzle round out the wide range of childhood toys that spark imagination. These Top 12 run on brain power, wonder and imagination.
One of the items on the 2013 Brilliance List is the Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel by Melissa & Doug. I’ve always loved this easel, I can see why it made it on the list!

I totally understand why the Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel by Melissa & Doug was named one of Brilliant Sky Toys and Books top 12 Kid Favorites and added to the 2013 Brilliance List. This is a fantastic toy. Not only is it great for helping kids with their fine motor skills, but it will bring out the artist in them too!
I love that this easel can be used by two kids at the same time – what an awesome feature! I have my 4 year old, Gracie, and I also have daycare kids so this will really come in handy!
As you can see in the photos, the easel can hold a roll of paper, which is the BEST way to purchase paper. Better than buying a package of paper that will run out in a week. The roll sits nicely on the built-in holder and it is held in place perfectly by the wooden ‘bars’. The bottom wooden ‘bar’ is also an awesome child-safe paper cutter so the child can just rip off their paper when they are done. How awesome is that?!?
Another great feature is the adjustable height. This easel will last forever!
Great pick Brilliant Sky Toys and Books!
