National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA)
The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) is the "go-to" source for parents and professionals looking for the best children’s products and resources for parents. The NAPPA recognition means far more than simply a "good-enough" seal of approval. It signifies that a product has been rigorously evaluated against stringent criteria by expert judges and family testers and that it stands out among hundreds of similar products from around the world. Only the most select products win the prestigious NAPPA award.
NAPPA's team of independent judges involve input from parents, children and professionals working with children to name the most entertaining, appealing, safe, educational, age-appropriate and enduring products as NAPPA winners. Recognized as the most comprehensive awards program of its kind, NAPPA holds two distinct competitions each year: the NAPPA Children's Products winners and the NAPPA Parenting Resources winners. As NAPPA continues to serve families, the NAPPA seal has come to symbolize innovation and high quality that parents trust.
