Kidz Gear Wins 2005 Top Creative Toy Awards

El Dorado Hills, CA, November 22, 2005 — Kidz Gear, the Grown-up Performance, Built For Kids! brand, announced today that two of its products, Headphones for Kids and Binoculars for Kids, have won Creative Child Magazine’s 2005 “Top Creative Toy Awards.”

Creative Child Magazine awarded 2005 “Top Creative Toy Awards” to:
• Kidz Gear’s Headphones for Kids won the PREFERRED CHOICE AWARD Toy of the Year Finalist (Travel Products for Kids) and
• Kidz Gear Binoculars For Kids won the SEAL OF EXCELLENCE AWARD (Indoor & Outdoor Play category).

“We are extremely proud that Creative Child Magazine has recognized two of our products for the prestigious ‘Top Creative Toy Awards,’” said Laurie Peterson, Founder, Kidz Gear. “Kidz Gear’s goal is to increase children’s creativity by providing child-sized consumer electronics products and accessories that let kids have adult-quality products without the expensive price tag.”

Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids
Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids are the first adult-featured stereo headphones made especially for children with the same high quality, high performance components found in many adult headphones available from top consumer electronics manufactures. Priced at only $19.99, Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids’ unique safety and comfort features include independent volume controls, child-friendly ergonomic design with soft padded child-size ear-cups that deliver the same listening experience as their adult counterparts, but at a fraction of the cost.

Kidz Gear Binoculars for Kids
Priced at only $29.99, Kidz Gear Binoculars for Kids are constructed with a rugged all-metal body and rubberized armor coating for easy grip and long life. They are small enough to ensure an optimal interpupillary distance measurement (the distance between the eyes) that fits the close-set eyes and smaller faces of many young adventurers, while still providing a comfortable and secure feeling in the child’s hands.

Kidz Gear products are not typical “toys,” but adult products built for kids. The products are designed by founder and mother Laurie Peterson to solve the never-ending battle between a child’s desire for his or her parent’s things — headphones, binoculars, walkie-talkies — and the parent’s fear of them destroying expensive products.

Kidz Gear Headphones for Kids are available at leading California-area toy stores and gift shops and online at For more information, call 916-933-7858 or visit the web site.
