Faculty Dave Schultze Receives Toy of the Year Nomination

The ‘Black Light Illuminator’, created by Toy Design faculty Dave Schultze, has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Toy of the Year’ honor by the Toy Industry Association (TIA) jury.

For Schultze, owner and founder of SchultzeWORKS designstudio, this is the third Toy of the Year nomination in the last four years. The Illuminator has also been awarded the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Seal Award for 2015.

Schultze created the ‘Black Light Illuminator’ for Educational Insight’s ‘Nancy B’s Science Club® ‘ line, which focuses on STEM-learning and scientific exploration.

The Black Light Illuminator is a science sleuthing activity kit. It encourages scientific exploration as users collect and observe rocks, insects, and flowers that glow under black light, make gelatin that glows, and learn counterfeit money detection, encrypting codes and ciphers, and more. The kit also includes journaling activities, providing lessons in hands-on forensic science.

The Toy of the Year winners will be announced in New York on February 12th.
