We are Be Amazing Toys!
For the past decade Be Amazing! Toys has brought to school classrooms, retail stores and the world some of the most awe inspiring and fun science toys. It all started when we discovered Insta-Snow in 2002. The idea of just adding water to a powder and immediately having an overflowing amount of faux snow was simply… AMAZING.
Today our product line has expanded and includes the Energy Stick, Geyser Tube, the wildly successful Sick! Science line, the new Sky Blue Flight airplanes as well as many unique and AMAZING science products. Since beginning our company in 2003, our goal with every product, has been to tickle the brain, have a wow factor in every kit and to simply … Be AMAZING.

He is an ecclesiastical leader and spends many hours working with neighbors and friends. He enjoys working with toys and showing others how “amazing” Be Amazing Toys! really are.
