Upon reaching major milestones in Toys R Us Canada:
#1 Preschool Games
#1 Family Games
#1 Autism Awareness
And becoming an Amazon’s Choice game in the U.S., Claudia Faierman Shulman shares some of the secrets of her success in this Q and A with Forbes Contributor and education journalist, Jenn Choi.
The My Feelings Game was expanded to all Toys R Us Canada locations by March 2017
Jenn: Why do you think your game has become such a bestseller in so many categories?
Claudia: I think today’s parents are expecting more. Parents know that all people, children and adults alike are becoming so self-absorbed with their phones, emails, and texts. This worries them and I knew they were looking for a way to have fun with their kids while getting to know their thoughts and feelings. Sadly, no one really attempted to create such a game in the mainstream market.
Jenn: It doesn’t hurt to have endorsements from major luminaries in child development. Who has supported My Feelings Game so far?
Claudia: The response has been overwhelming. We are honored to be praised by luminaries such as Dr. Temple Grandin, Dr. Tony Attwood, Dr. Stephen Shore, Dr. Lucy Miller, Dr. Serena Wieder, Dr. Paula Kluth, Dr. Brenda Myles, Paula Aquilla, Ellen Yack and Rozanne Israel. All of them are pioneers in their respective fields.
