Smart-Bear - Wins Best Socially Responsible Children's Product - 2005



The prestigious International Dr. Toy Awards Program has granted Leboe & Grice Multimedia's "Smart Bear Adventures" three awards for 2005: Top 10 Socially Responsible Product, Best Children's Vacation Product, and Best 100 Children's Products. The honor spans the multiple categories of Arts & Crafts, CD-Roms, DVDs, books, games, software and toys. Award winning Smart-Bear Adventures has gained favor with fussy International buyers to place Smart-Bear Adventures on the shelves of trendy Apple Retail Stores across the US and nudge shelf space in Canada.

Smart-Bear Adventures is a unique blend between a storybook and a videogame for children aged 3-9 years. "Parents are looking for fun and socially responsible products this year," says Dr. Stevanne Auerbach, known as Dr. Toy. Auerbach is recognized internationally as one of the pre-eminent authorities on child development, play and toys.

"Smart-Bear Adventures combines the educational values parents and educators want for their kids - with original stories, compelling graphics and activities children find engaging," says Lynn Leboe, CEO of Leboe & Grice Multimedia, mother of three and creator of the programs.

BC Ministry of Education has approved Smart-Bear Adventures along with a Teacher Guide and a bilingual Read and Play Reader to be used in schools to teach elementary science.
