Our Awards

The success of Crazy Aaron's Puttyworld did not happen overnight. Starting from a small company with a handful of employees, we have grown into a top brand in specialty toys. An amazing toy (and so much more) that's available in over 40 colors, Thinking Putty is a fun and unique product that's proudly made in the USA. We are so grateful that our commitment to quality has been recognized by industry leaders. Please take a moment to check out our awards.


The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association (ASTRA) is a dedicated community of professionals committed to providing children with healthy, quality play materials that have high play value.


    In 2015, Crazy Aaron’s UV Reactive Phantoms line won Learning Express’ Best Toy for Science. And the brand-new Mixed by Me Thinking Putty Kit won one of ASTRA’s Best Toys for Kids awards before it even hit the shelves!


    Crazy Aaron’s Puttyworld won ASTRA’s Manufacturer of the Year. This award is given to one manufacturer each year, chosen by its peers, for offering outstanding customer service and best practices in manufacturing. The company also won toy franchise Learning Express’ Best Toy Of the Year as well as its Best Product Innovation award at the summer convention.


    Tidal Wave Super Magnetic Thinking Putty won one of ASTRA’s Best Toys for Kids. The ever-popular Super Magnetic Thinking Putty line comes with a large ceramic magnet that charges the putty and allows it to take on magnetic properties. In previous years, Super Magnetic Thinking Putty, as well as other popular lines like Heat Sensitive Hypercolors and Super Illusions, have been featured in national gift guides and magazines like People and Real Simple.
