Hi %recipient.firstname%,


Animaplates is moving! No, not the website, nothing changes there. But our little team (two people and two cats) will finally have a permanent home again.

You probably hadn't noticed, but over the past 16 months we have moved 3 times. In June 2017, we relocated to a temporary home in Montreal, but we went back every month for short stays in Ottawa. Since July 2018 we are back in Ottawa and finally, since yesterday, we are getting settled in our new home south of the city.

I can tell you that this was not an easy time, especially for creating new projects when most of my supplies were in storage


When I will be more or less settled, I will share a video of my new facilities with you.

To celebrate this milestone as well as Black Friday, we are offering a rebate on the price of a Pro Membership. See the box below!


Responses to my survey on product evaluations were overwhelmingly positive. Since I like discovering new games myself as well, I reviewed another one this week.

"Castle Logix" is a three-dimensional puzzle game made from wooden blocks and towers that are easy to manipulate for tiny hands. There is a nice progression in the difficulty of the 48 challenges, so that kids can have fun for a long time with this game, while improving certain essential cognitive skills.


You can buy the game online here.


Playing with puppets is a unique experience for children, and I have seen shy kids who weren't afraid to express themselves through the voice of a puppet.

It is even more engaging when children create their own puppets. There are all kinds of puppets on the Animaplates website. You are sure to find something that goes with the type of story you want to stage.

For example, here is Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer.
