A Message from TNPC’s President


Dear Parents,

As we all scramble to savor the waning days of summer and begin the annual School Supply Shuffle we are pleased to offer you the fruits of our summer labors our Fall Seal of Approval Report.

Actually it is the fruits of our amazing parent testers who have come in droves to test and evaluate new products and services vying for your attention on store shelves and online.

The winners represent not only products that met with the approval of our discerning testers, but also the companies who have worked hard to create products that are deserving of your attention.

It takes a tremendous amount of work to produce something and bring it to market, but it takes an even deeper level of commitment to make sure it connects with parents and their children. It is because of that that we put submissions in front of parents throughout the year to recognize and celebrate those who have brought their best to produce the best.

All the best from everyone at The National Parenting Center,

David Katzner
President

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
