BOOMWHACKERS® TUNED PERCUSSION TUBES RECOGNIZED AMONG BEST 25 TOYS IN 25 YEARS
 

Sedona, AZ - December 19, 2003- Whacky Music's C Major Diatonic Scale Set of Boomwhackers® Tuned Percussion Tubes has recently been selected as one of the Best 25 Toys in 25 Years by Parents' Choice Foundation, which is celebrating a quarter century as the nation's premier non-profit guide to quality children's media.

In announcing the awards, Parents' Choice stated the following: "The stellar products on these lists — Best 25 of 25 Years — were chosen by a select committee of parents, librarians, critics and educators from the organization's extensive archives of past Parents' Choice Award winners. These are, indeed, the very finest contributions to the education and entertainment of children since Parents' Choice was founded in 1978."

"This award is an incredible honor for us," states Craig Ramsell, President of Whacky Music, Inc., and creator of the Boomwhackers Musical Tubes. "Our Boomwhackers Tubes are proving themselves daily as an important educational tool. While they have received numerous toy awards in the past, we see this one as a significant recognition of their long-term importance in helping to develop the musical potential of children around the world who are having fun at the same time, of course!"

Over two million of Whacky Music's Boomwhackers Musical Tubes have been sold. They are tuned by length to different color-coded musical notes and made of brightly colored plastic. In addition to being enjoyed by children, the tubes are being used by music educators around the world, music therapists, drum circle facilitators, and team-building, motivation and creativity consultants. Producing a unique sound, they have been used on recordings, soundtracks, and in numerous professional performances. Boomwhackers Tubes have also received a Parents' Choice Gold Award, a Dr. Toy's Best 100 Children's Products, and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal. The company is based in Sedona, Arizona.
