A huge THANK YOU to Spin Master and Tryacon for sending us complimentary games to make our Family Game Night a success! 

When was the last time you did a game night? I don’t mean sitting down with your immediate family to play a certain property buying board game that ends in frustration and a fight over building houses and hotels. I mean a real Family game night with appetizers and some real competition from other people your own age. I’m talking about setting the kids at (or on) the kitchen island to play a game while the adults gather around with some adult beverages and play for bragging rights (no actual bragging rights changed hands). With an assortment of games from Spin Master we were ready to take on the challenge. While the kids made a mess with Soggy Doggy and Sink’N’Sand we had a rousing game of Headbanz and Less is More. The food was awesome, the games were a blast, we all had fun and we can’t wait to do it again

Spin Master was founded in 1994 by two childhood friends, Ronnen Harary and Anton Rabie, and were later joined by classmate Ben Varadi. Together, they produced and sold their first product, the Earth Buddy a nylon stocking covered head of sawdust topped with grass seeds which grew to emulate hair, funded with their own $10, 000 investment. With Anton selling the item on the street and to specialty retailers, the operation quickly expanded to a small facility in downtown Toronto. This initial success served as the springboard for Spin Master’s entry into the toy business.

Since 2000, Spin Master has received 103 TIA Toy of The Year (TOTY) nominations with 28 wins across a variety of product categories, including 13 TOTY nominations for Innovative Toy of the Year, more than any of its competitors. The company’s continued investment and support of its entertainment division has also yielded meaningful results. To date, Spin Master has produced six television series, including 2007 success, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, and current hit PAW Patrol, which is broadcast in over 160 countries and territories globally.

When Spin Master began to chart it’s course in the children’s entertainment industry, the founders recognized that in order to compete successfully with the established brands of larger companies, they had to design and market innovative products that would “wow” consumers and disrupt the traditional toy market. With the inspiration of its founders, who remain actively engaged in the business today Spin Master has maintained a deeply rooted culture of creativity, partnership an d passion.
