If you are a parent, you know how challenging it is to keep you kids entertained and engaged – especially away from video games and TV. And in this fast moving digital age, kids like to see results from their actions quickly and want to have fun in the process. While on the beach, you need beach toys that entertain your children, not frustrate them. Part of the belief system here at Create A Castle is to make sure that your children (and you parents) get results from your efforts.
There is nothing more upsetting than taking hours of your day on the beach only to have that awesome sand castle collapse or be taken out by a wave after all of that time and effort that went into your well thought out project. And it’s easy to get frustrated with one dimensional molds that we’ve all used where the sand normally sticks inside of the mold and doesn’t quite meet expectations (see video below).
Create A Castle has taken the guess work out of creating a awesome sand castle and let’s your child’s imagination soar! We’ve created a beach toy for not only your kids, but also parents will enjoy as a family and making memories on the beach one grain of sand at a time! We guarantee that not only will you have fun, but you will have a conversation piece once completed constructing your castle or castles depending on how many towers you want to build!
Our patent pending modular split mold pack and stack system will blow your mind at how quickly you can construct a tower that turn heads the second you reveal your masterpiece hidden beneath our molds. We want to see all of the masterpieces as you create them, so snap your photos and use #createacastle via social media to share what you and your family bring to life.
So go ahead and feel like a kid again when you spend time with your family and friends making memories. Get outside and go Create A Castle!
So you may be asking yourself, what does a photo have to do with product development or inventing something new? If you’ve read any of my other post you’ll know I’m a strong advocate for all things technology. I love gadgets and things that work autonomously but in the same breath, I also love existing things that have been around for years and have proven their value in our world that we live in. For instance, a printed photo slapped on your refrigerator via a magnet sleeve, there’s no better inspiration than this. I love it for multiple reasons, first being it’s a proven technology much older than any of us reading this (the oldest known existing photo is from 1835), secondly it’s in your face every single day and you see it as a clear reminder of why you are doing whatever it is you are doing! Thirdly, what’s better than looking at photos from the past of your family and friends that you will otherwise never really look at all that much if it’s strictly in digital form, they are all memories to be reminded of!
Perhaps the title seems a bit overzealous, but if you watch and listen, sand castles really are featured in so many major ad campaigns and songs and can easily go un-noticed. For instance, Sam Adams ran an ad about their summer ale at the beginning of this summer. You will notice in the video screen capture, the very first thing you see is a bottle of their classic summer ale sitting next to a sand castle, but a sand castle with one major flaw! It’s partially collapsed! Watch the commercial closer and you will see that in the middle of the ad, they show several existing molds lifting off, showing multiple collapses. This is one of the problems that we are solving here at Create A Castle!
A passion for castles and the arts started when I was young, very young…when in third grade I was awarded for designing a clay pot I made at Mill Ridge School in Danbury, Connecticut. Even before this, tinker toys and wooden blocks, to growing up in a bake shop (literally) and living in my grandmother’s house with a greenhouse attached to it for year round gardening, which was her passion, I’ve always been surrounded by things that forced me to use the creative side of my mind. My incredible mom recently shared some of my old artwork from way back then, which I created when home with her at her bakery, Heidi’s Cake and Cookie Shop in Danbury Connecticut. It all started to add up why I’m so passionate about Create A Castle!
