NYIGF 2012: Curious About: Nocilis

Flip out these silicone blocks and a beautiful shape emerges.

New York International Gift Fair 2012
WHO: Nocilis

TOOLS: Tools will be discussed if there is a review

This post is late but I thought this was worth digging up.  I couldn't find this video until today.  I made myself search for it again since I had received feedback from a friend about these blocks, I thought I'd load this video up on YouTube.

I really enjoyed seeing all of these toys from different parts of the world.  A few had no official distributors in the U.S. and so pictures are all we'll get to see.  This product Nocilis is one such company.  They make these beautiful silicone blocks that when flipped outward, transform into a neat shape.   They are chew-friendly and because they are made of silicone, they can be boiled to satisfy our most germophobic friends.

They do cost a pretty penny.  I think I was told a pack of 12 costs around $120 US.   But I have some friends and family members who are big-time chewers and think that each of these folks has spent more than that to satisfy their chewing needs.  Thus, I think Nocilis, if just for the fashion-friendly chew aspect merits more exploration.  Thanks to my friend S.L. for the good feedback.  I hope they find a bridge to the U.S. market.   What an amazing gift for the little guys.  These won't end up at the bottom of the toybox- that's for sure.
