GlowDeckTM Wins Toy Insider Top Holiday Toy 2022
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STORYASTIC’S GLOWDECK(TM) PLAYING CARDS WIN “TOP HOLIDAY TOY”
The Toy Insider Praises GlowDeck’s Innovative Design & Shareable “Cool Factor”
New York, NY, Sept 16, 2022 – There’s only 100 days till Christmas! With 2022 flying by due to people’s busy-ness catching up after two-plus years of pandamic problems, families and friends look forward to celebrating together this holiday season. They want to be together in person—not via their screens. The Toy Insider just awarded Storyastic’s Glow Deck Playing Cards the status of TOP HOLIDAY TOY in their Toy Insider Holiday Gift Guide. Although this award acknowledges the inherent INNOVATIVE FUN-FACTOR of these playing cards for kids and teens, Glow Deck is fabulously fun for adults, too.
Glow Deck playing cards feature bright, colorful, uber-cool suit designs that look great in daylight, and they are absolutely stunning in fluorescent (black) light. (Blacklight bulbs, LEDs and flashlights are available at stores and online for less than $3.00. Storyastic recommends Gohyo 27W LED UV Bar Glow.)
The cards have clear, finely designed artwork and eye-popping Pantone fluorescent ink over deep matte black backgrounds. They also have an easy-shuffle matte finish, so they’re easy to handle, shuffle and deal. They’re designed by “Disney Couple” Dana and Chip Brown, founders of Storyastic and makers of multi-award-winning The Rank Game.
“What a distinct honor to be recognized a second time by The Toy Insider,” said Chip. (Storyastic’s DuraDeck waterproof and tear-proof playing cards won Hot Summer Toy this summer.)
“We are privileged to know that many families and playing card afficionados will discover Glow Deck and our other new innovative playing card decks thanks to The Toy Insider’s superb, consistent work in vetting and recommending products,” Dana added. “And, it’s cool that so many families and friends will enjoy Glow Deck together, away from technology and screen time, encouraging everyone to “Tech less and talk more.”

“Storytastic's Glow Deck playing cards are the perfect stocking stuffer for the holiday season!” said Toy Insider Magazine editor-in-chief Ali Mierzejewski, “At a great price point of $14.99, these eye-catching cards provide a unique way to play.”
Glow Deck playing cards allow you to play your favorite card games in the pitch dark, which is extraordinarily fun. Of course, you can also play with them during the daylight. Either way, the four bright colored suits are way more easy to differentiate from one another than boring old black and red suits, and the clear numbers in the corners are easy to read, so you can focus on strategy and gameplay.
