Israeli-based Modular™ Construction Toys Builds Momentum in U.S.
Connectable and compatible construction sets allow both boys and girls to build train tracks, raceways, towns and more
Merion Station, PA -- March 19, 2014 – Modular™ Construction Toys, the Israeli-based manufacturer of Modular Toys construction sets, brings its innovative product line to the U.S. with Modular Toys USA. This expansion brings the popular racetracks, locomotive construction and building sets for ages 4-8 to specialty toy retailers across the U.S.
Modular Construction Toys is focused on the American specialty toy market with more than 125 stores across the country already stocking its construction sets. The expansion is led by experienced specialty toy distributor and consultant, Steve Pechter.
“Modular Toys has a huge following in Israel and I am already starting to see that same level of interest in the United States,” said Pechter. “Our pieces use a patented connection system to allow all sets to work together for open-ended play. The pieces are large enough for little hands and included characters and vehicles to bring the sets to life for children.”
Sets are designed to grow vertically through the use of included elevation pieces and no sorting of pieces needs to take place since the innovative connector pieces let children mix and match different Modular Construction Toys sets to engage in developing creativity and abstract thinking.
