Here at Creative QT we believe that nothing brings more joy to a family than the simple act of choosing to make time together. Our hope is that our products enrich families lives through imaginative, creative play and that our brand is an encouraging reminder for families to choose to Make Time Together.
"You hear it over and over again from your parents and friends with older kids. 'Before you know it, they’re graduated and moving out' or 'the days are long, but the years are short.’ There are a hundred variations of this phrase but at the core of it is a warning from veteran parents to us newbies; and it’s this: you only have a little time with your kids, so use it wisely,” says Dana Sue, Creative QT co-founder.
The reality of families spending quality time together is diminishing. Less than half of American families eat dinner together three times a week. Even more eye-opening, the average American child aged 6-11 watches approximately 28 hours of television each week. The need for families to Make Time Together has never been greater.
Make Time Together is our simple reminder for families that time is fleeting. The golden years are now; the time to be the hero in our child’s life is now. The time to turn off the television and to engage in creative, active, imaginative play is now. We can fret about yesterday or worry about tomorrow, but the only thing we truly can have an impact on is TODAY.

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
